Quentin - Awesome job on the maps!

My latest round of notes to get put into the spreadsheet:

Here is a few housekeeping items:

Remove the word "Award" from Rookie All Star "Award "where ever it appears.
Search for the regional winners and make sure they say Regional Winner and not Regional: Winner
When a team has won more than one award the heirarchy is Rookie All Star first, then Regional Winner, then any other award.  Several teams have Highest Rookie Seed listed first.

Team 3125 attended the Connecticut Regional.  That's what everyone will call it. The Northeast Utilities can go away. And the Rookie All Star needs to be capitalized.


3381:  Team name: 
Kohler Solar Valders Droid Rage
Because they don't just build robots, they build people, Valders has asked each team member to show the impact of their rookie year in FIRST through testimonials on their website.  They plan to start both FLL and FTC teams in the fall.

3161 is from Oakville, ON, Canada.   They were Alliance Captains!

Tronic Titans has been affectionalely known as  “The Devil Spawn.”  This team was mentored by some great "post-secondary" mentors and was helped out by FRC 1334 'to get rolling and with last minute part requests.


3207 Team Name: OWATC Fighting Scots

The Fighting Scots have styled their robot, Skootr, as a "hummer," complete with a license plate and playing mean defense.   Decked out with plaid faces and kilts, this young team's imagery impressed the judges!

3186 Team Name: Decabotz Robotics

DECA, which is short for Dayton Early College Academy, has formed the Decabotz and had an 8 photo spread in their local newpaper's online album. The team has 15 students who all know that because of DECA and lots of hard work, they are going to college. They met Dean Kamen in St. Louis and he signed their robot!

3284  (fix the Regional: Winner for this team.)  Building their robot, Jenny, LASER Robotics put in over 2500 student hours and over 1000 mentor hours.  They received some great publicity from their local Channel 3 news station!

General factoid #1:

The 2010 Championship event welcomes five rookie teams from outside the USA!  Two teams hail from our neighbor Canada to the north – team 3161 from Oakville, Ontario, and team 3360 from Sherbrooke, Quebec.  Team 3158 comes from our southern neighbor – they’re from Metepec, Mexico, about 75 miles (120 km) from Mexico City.  Making a big change in longitude, but almost no change in latitude, is team 3339 from Kfar Yona, Tel Aviv, Israel.  And the team that’s made the longest journey by far comes from right around the globe…team 3132 from Sydney, New South Wales, Australia!  Welcome to all our rookie world travelers!

General factoid #2:

What’s in a name?  For a rookie team, it’s a chance to establish an identity – maybe something really memorable!  Some themes show up a lot in team names: various colors, military references, or animals.  Here are a few names that tickled our fancy this year.  Favorite “color” name - Purple Precision (not just a great color, great alliteration too!). Favorite “military” name – Fighting Scots (kilts and safety glasses go well together).  Favorite “animal” name – Aluminum Narwhals (what can we say?).  And in the “other” category – Team SPORK, because you can’t beat it for eating noodle soup!

General factoid #3:

A few hard-working rookie teams were unable to make it to the 2010 Championship event, despite having qualified for a spot:
Team 3129 “Green MacHHHHine” – Rookie All-Star Award winner at the 2010 Silicon Valley Regional
Team 3135 “Robotic Colonels” - Rookie All-Star Award winner at the 2010 Midwest Regional and the 2010 Minnesota North Star Regional
Team 3137 “T-Birds” - Rookie All-Star Award winner at the 2010 SBPLI Long Island Regional
We salute these rookie teams and hope to see them all in future years!

Cynette - regional winners vs regional: winners.

To be consistent all the regionals are named like this:

BlaBlah Area Regional: {awards go here}

Do you want:

BlaBlah Area Regional: Winner, {other awards}
ir
BlaBlah Area Regional: Regional Winner, {other awards}

Also should we consistently use , or ; to separate awards in these listings?  Please DO NOT make further edits to the spreadsheets - we are now editing directly in document.
