Below is the advancement status for each tournament as of 02/05/17.
The table represents the advancement criteria as listed in section 4.8.2 of Part 1 of the FIRST Tech Challenge Game Manual.
All host teams are assumed to have advanced prior to the start of any Qualifying Tournament. Host team advancement is dependent upon the successful completion of a tournament that meets FIRST Tech Challenge and NorCal FTC standards.
For the 2016 season, we will be hosting 48 teams at the NorCal FTC Championship. There were 17 qualifying tournament equivalents currently scheduled (14 tournaments, with 3 being 2-field events … 14 + 3 = 17). 48/17 = 2.8 teams per QT.
Based on this, there will be a minimum of 2 teams per single-field event and a minimum of 4 per 2-field event.
Advancing Teams are marked with a Star Icon. Teams that have previously advanced (including host teams) are marked with a padlock icon. Teams that are currently the next advancing team from the tournament are marked with a checkmark. Teams that are ineligible to advance based on having already competed 3 times are marked with a red X.
We will hold a lottery of the tournaments with the next eligible team from the tournaments drawn advancing to the NorCal FTC Regional Championship. The lottery took place during the half-time show during the SuperBowl.
After all tournaments were completed, 34 of 48 spaces at the NorCal FTC Regional Championship were filled. The remaining 14 were filled by randomly sorting the list of tournaments and adding the next eligible team from the each tournament in order.
The random ordering was: Intel, Alameda, Daly City, Walnut Creek, San Jose (TPS), Carmichael, Redwood City, Roseville, Google, San Jose (8872), Cisco, Saratoga, GitHub, and Burlingame.
