Blackstone 2005



Post-tournament: A great time was had by all at the Blackstone tournament!  The tournament was held in the new Competition Center at Blackstone Valley Tech, and was expanded to include 64 teams!  Our three qualifying teams - the Sharon Eagle Robotics DoodleBots, Devil-Bots and Motorized Fishes - all finished in the top half of the field of 64 in the morning seeding rounds.  The single-elimination afternoon competition started strong, and the DoodleBots team made it to the 3rd round.  All performed well, and the DoodleBots team came away with the Team Spirit award!

The Sharon Eagle Robotics Mentors team was also out in force, helping the Sharon teams and promoting the new FIRST Vex Challenge for "graduating" FLL teams heading for high school.  They brought their Robotic Soccer field, and enough Vex robots for the FLL teams to play 2 on 2 robotic soccer in their spare moments.

Pre-tournament: SYRA runoffs were held on Tuesday 11-15-05 at the Girl Scout House to determine which Sharon Eagle Robotics teams will represent us at the Blackstone Regional FLL tournament to be held Saturday 11-19-05.  Coaches - our team tee shirts will be available for pickup by Thursday evening.  Thanks to the Robotic Chimps team for the great design!

The doors will open at the Blackstone Valley Regional Technical High School at 7:00 AM.  All teams will meet in the new Competition Center at 8:30am.  The seeding rounds will start at 9:00am, the single-elimination rounds at 12:30pm, and the awards ceremony at 2:30pm.
