FRC team 1629 has just registered to compete at the Chesapeake FIRST Robotics Competition for the 2014 competition season which starts in January. The 2014 season marks the tenth year anniversary for the team. It was at the Chesapeake regional that the team first competed during the 2005 season. The 2014 Chesapeake regional is slated for the Comcast Center on the campus of the University of Maryland, College Park, April 3-5, as a "Week 6" regional.

Chesapeake was our initial selection for the 2014 season. Within an hour of the initial event registration, which opened at noon on Thursday, September 26, approximately 24 other teams had registered for the Chesapeake regional as well. It is expected that by the time registration closes, a total of sixty teams will have signed up to compete at the Chesapeake Regional. Registration for our second regional opens on October 10. We'll looking towards registering for a second Regional at least two weeks prior to the Chesapeake Regional that meets the team's travel and budget constraints. All total, there are more that fifty regional and district events in which FRC teams can select to compete.
