Ontario District Championships

From April 10th to 13th, R3P2 had the privelage of competiting at the Ontario District Championships alongside some of the best teams in the world. We worked hard to qualify throughout the season and were proud to seed 16th out of the 40 teams in the Science division. We also won the championship entrepreneurship award, an amazing feat. Our team finished the competition ranking 57 in the district out of a total of 179 teams! Sadly, this was not enough to qualify for the World Championships in Detroit and as such, this brings an end to the 2019 season for R3P2. We'd like to thank all our sponsors and we hope to see everyone back for next year's season.

Western Engineering District Event

On April 5th, R3P2 packed it's bags and travelled to London, Ontario to compete in the Western Engineering Distrct Event at Western University. The weekend treated us well and at the end of the qualification rounds, 5834 seeded at 11th out of 40 teams! In alliance selection, 5408 graciously invited us to join the fifth alliance alongisde 5596 to face the fourth alliance in playoffs. After a hard fought quarterfinals with a scoring tie and a tiebreaker match, we were sadly eliminated. However with our impressive run at this event, we racked up enough points to qualify for the Ontario District Championships taking place next weekend. We can't wait to see you all there!

Western Uni

Humber College District Event

Hurray! Team 5834 had an exciting weekend over at Humber College from March 8th - 10th. We got to compete with some amazing teams and made some great new friends! We ended the event with our highest seed ever at an official FIRST event as the 9th seed! We had the honour of teaming up with 6978 and team 7723 as the sixth alliance for playoffs. Due to the success of our hardworking business and outreach team, we won the entrepreneurship award, our first judged award since 2016. Go Raiders!

On January 5th, the Riverdale Raiders went to Western Tech to visit FRC team 865, Warp7, to join them for their annual kickoff event. We had a blast brainstorming and analyzing the game with them and are excited to bring the 2019 build season to a start!
