My team didn't make it to championships this year. We were a rookie team, so all odds were against us (especially the fact that there were only 8 kids on our team, while most teams have at least 40). However, every team we met at the competition informed us that they would have guessed we were at least a 3 year team, and we did amazingly well for being rookies with 8 members. Overall, it was a fantastic experience being on an FRC team... and we're making it to championship next year.  Wink

Did you manage to watch a regional (online or live) of last year's game (Logomotion)?

Wait...what is FRC?  Is that like FLL but for AFOLs?  (Keep in mind, everything I know about FLL comes from a single Brickmaster article, so I'm a little vague on the whole thing.)

FRC is FLL's older brother. The age range for FLL is 6(?) through 14, while FRC is 14-18. You must be in highschool to be a part of FRC. In FLL, you build with Mindstorms. In FRC, you build with metal (the robots are also a lot bigger, and are usually about 120 pounds and 5 feet tall).

Awesome! I can't wait to see them.  Smiley But no rush... I have college tests I'm studying for atm. It's great that you're sharing challenges with us, have you considered getting an NXT?

If I could get one cheap, I would!  But alas, my discretionary spending is limited for now.  Undecided

I found one on Craigslist.org a few weeks ago, at a good price, but it was from a smoking household, so I passed. CL has awesome deals on all kinds of used and sometimes new LEGO.
But you do have to know your prices because some people are like LU traders!

Here is an example.

There is a craigslist in almost every town in the US and in many other countries.

I actually watched a live tournament near me! Pretty interesting stuff!

Flipz, I totally understand.

MsRR, yep, CL is a good place to buy them it seems.

Jayko, I'm glad you got the opportunity! The minibots were my favorite part of the whole season, and watching them live was way more exciting than on the computer (I watched 2 regionals live, and 2 on the computer). However, it is also harder to see them.  Smiley
