In three and a half hours 3077 will make the unexpected trek to the Diamond State FIRST Tech Challenge. Long trip ahead but lots of excitement (at least before getting up at 3-something in the morning).
First FTC event for 2011-2012 in just 8 days. Having a work day to whip our bot in shape.
11/19 was not a banner day for 3077 as a whole. We did not win a round all day, but there was some clear bright spots. We used our two newest members as our drive team most of the day and they did very well for rookies. I’m looking forward to some great driving from them as they get more experience.
A couple of times our bot tipped over, once in autonomous and once right at the beginning of driver control. We had some technical issues (did you know you CAN burn out a Vex 2 wire motor) that cost us during the day. But the team really pitched in as a team to try to solve the issues quickly.
We did have a great chance to use our new scouting form. I was great and printing it on cardstock was a great idea for increasing durability during the event. One team even asked to have one so they could create a better scouting form for themselves.
Next event is in two short weeks!
3077 had a great chance today to meet with the KCA Director of Development, Barbara Hanks. She is helping us refine our fundraising efforts and planning for our sponsorship packets. Lots of work to to both here and on our robots.
FTC “Bowled Over” looks like lots of fun! Even Rookie teams can score big! We are looking forward to a great season! We won a field element in a give-away they had at the Capital City College game reveal – woo hoo! This should really help us design & practice!
Got a chance to try out our bot on VEX “Gateway” … needs work.
