The Duluth East Daredevils made the Elimination Rounds as the 16th seed alliance (bumped up to 3rd after the alliance selection) and were picked by Team 27, Team RUSH from Clarkston, MI, along with Team 5232, Hawks Robotics of Hermatown, MN. We made it all the way into the Semi Finals where we lost to the 2nd seed alliance. We wish the remaining teams all the best. Good luck and go teams!
We would love for you to join us on March 6 – 8 at the DECC where 113 teams and their robots will be participating in either the Northern Lights or Lake Superior Regionals. We will once again be hosting and attending the Northern Lights Regional. These competitions will break the FIRST world record for the largest number of FRC teams under one roof for a regional event! These teams will also be competing for a spot in the FIRST World Championships in St. Louis, Mo April 24 – 26.

We’d like to give a big thank you to everyone who signed up and is planning to volunteer at the double DECCer regionals this coming March 6-8 at the DECC. According to Volunteer Coordinator, Laurie Shimizu, all volunteer positions are currently filled. These competitions would not be possible without your help.
Thank you so much for your amazing support of FIRST Robotics in the Northland, and we’ll see you at the competition!
On Sunday, we went to Itasca Community College Scrimmage to practice before the end of Build Season along with 15 other teams from across the Northland and even North Dakota. Itasca had student volunteers from their Engineering Department build and run the field which was located in the school’s gym. All of the teams tried to get on to the field with a running robot for a few practice matches at some point in day. We were on the field for most of day practicing picking up the ball and shooting it into the ten point goals. After lunch, Luke D., our Strategy Captain, explained the basic rules of Aerial Assist. Afterwards, all able working robots were put into alliances for practice matches. Once the matches had wrapped up, awards were given to several of the attending teams, and there was a raffle for several scholarships to ICC Summer Camps. We received the Gracious Professionalism Award, and one of the scholarships for some of our students to attend a week-long camp at the college during the summer.
