      qualification rounds. For a rookie team, this is amazing.

      powerhouse teams needed to compete.

      The outcome of this story: Perhaps it is advantageous to show up at a
      regional with a solid running base, a box of parts, and a sign on your robot
      saying "What can I do for your team?".

      Something to think about!

      According to FIRST web site, using the rank of all of the divisions at
      5:20pm.....

      4082 Dayton Bulldogs ranked 3rd on Arch.

      I love this game!

      Amazing story. Has anyone written up their complete story? I would love to use them as an inspiration to future FRC teams. Google did not find much. Gil.
