Thanks to everybody who voted for our online design challenge entries!
We finished the first round of voting with the website coming first, the essay coming first, and the video coming second.

The community voting will determine seven of the ten finalists to make the final round of judging. Three additional submissions will be chosen by the VEX Advisory Councils, Innovation First engineers, and representatives of representatives from the presenting sponsors of the VEX Robotics Competition World Championship. The ten finalist submissions will then be scored with a weighted system including the community voting scores, and scores given by the VEX Robotics Advisory Councils and representatives from the presenting sponsors of the VEX Robotics Competition World Championship. The combined scores of the judging panels will determine the 2010 Website Challenge winners.ss_designchal_762x349_2

Well it was good to see 2921B and C robot do well in the last skirmish. 2921C got into the quarter finals and 2921B got into the semi finals with a good aliance (avondale) and went against another avondale robot and rangitoto collage. the first round was a fair win to rangitoto and avondale. And the second round avondale's (on the 2921B side) robot didn't work due to firmware corruption (default program) but even then it was a close match with 2v1. Over all it was a great scrimmage and good experience. lets hope we do better and bring home the trophy at the NZ nationals.

Thank you everyone, for your support of our team, Free Range Robotics, in our endeavours at the World Championships in Dallas. This competition had some huge excitement. A couple of highlights were our first two games; Each of these games is played by four teams: two blue teams versus two red teams. We are paired up randomly. In both of the first two games our partners were unable to play, so we played alone against two robots and we won both games. This immediately made our standing with everyone rocket up; it really showed the world what New Zealanders and homeschoolers are made of.
