Post-tournament: A great time was had by all at the Quincy tournament! Our qualifying team - the Sharon Eagle Robotic Chimps - finished 4th in the morning seeding rounds. The single-elimination afternoon best-of-16 competition was unlucky for the Chimps, with a low first run score finishing their challenge at 12th overall. Despite the single unfortunate round, it was a great job by the Robotic Chimps!
The Sharon Eagle Robotics Mentors team was present, helping the Sharon team 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 will be held on Tuesday 11-29-05 at the Girl Scout House to determine which Sharon Eagle Robotics team will represent us at the Quincy/Gillette Eastern Massachusetts State FLL tournament to be held Saturday 12-03-05 from 8:00am to 4:00pm.
At the tournament, doors will open at 8:00am, with registration from 8:00 to 9:00am. Opening ceremonies are at 9:00am, with both qualifying matches (high score of 3 rounds) and judging sessions from 9:30am to 12:30pm. After a 30 minute break, the play-offs will run from 1:00 to 3:00pm (top 16, single elimination), followed by awards. Food (AM coffee, juice & doughnuts; PM hot dogs, hamburgers and beverages) will be available in the cafeteria.
Note: Entry will be from the entrance in the rear of the building, between the gymnasium and the cafeteria (follow the signs). Parking is still available in the front.
At registration, the team should have a participation fee of $40.00, four completed Team Introduction Forms (with team photo attached to each), and FLL Consent Forms for each team member and coach. For teams that are not school-affiliated, a insurance waiver sheet must be submitted with your registration. This is simply a list of all attendees, with their current insurance plans and policy numbers.
