RoboNautica 2005



Post-tournament: A great time was had by all at the Robonautica tournament!  Our qualifying teams - the Sharon Eagle Robotics Motorized Fishes and Devil-Bots - finished 14th and 9th in the morning seeding rounds.  The single-elimination afternoon competition was hard fought, with both teams performing well, but not reaching the final three.  All the team members did well, and made their mentors and coaches proud!

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.  And it is to be noted that Ben, from the Mentors team, received a Mentors award, having been recommended by the Motorized Fishes team!

Pre-tournament: SYRA runoffs will be held on Tuesday 12-13-05 at the Girl Scout House to determine which Sharon Eagle Robotics teams will represent us at the RoboNautica Central Massachusetts FLL tournament to be held at WPI in Worcester on Saturday 11-19-05 from 7:30am to 4:00pm.

At the tournament, doors will open at 7:30am, with registration until 8:45am.  Opening ceremonies are at 8:45am, with both qualifying matches (average of best 4 out of 5 scores) and judging sessions from 9:00am to 1:30pm, with a 30 minute lunch break at 11:00am.  The play-offs will run from 2:00 to 3:30pm, followed by awards at 3:30pm.  Food (coffee, juice, doughnuts, etc.) will be available from 8:00am at the concession area next to the pit area, and the food court at the Campus Center will be open for lunch at 11:00 am.  A snack basket for eight will be at your pit table (juice, granola bars, fruit).
