In the awards, we were...
Inspire award, 2nd place
Which means....................WE ARE OFFICIALLY GOING TO STATES! YAY! Good job to all the teams and good luck to all the other FTC teams.
Woah!!!!!!!!!! Apparently, a team can alliance with another team in the top four. To replace that alliance, the next ranking team will come. Since we are 7th, we actually got pulled in as one of the captain teams. Leo was put in the spotlight but kept his cool and picked The Screaming Eagles as our alliance. We didn't win the whole thing, but were glad that we were able to compete in that part.
The Results Are In...
In the robot part, we placed 7th. Hats off to: Alp, Evelyn, Kristina, Parker and Zack. You guys are a great driving team. This means that we won't get to pick an alliance team, but hopefully one will pick us. Even if we don't, there are still awards...
Its finally here! There are so many new teams from all over the state here today. We'll try to keep you guys posted on all our big events.
Since we're a rookie team, we wanted to see the field, so the whole team went to robot inspection. The judges would make sure that Bob fit all of the requirements and that we had done all necessary tasks to prepare him for tomorrow. While most of the team was helping with that, Leo and I went to interview other teams for alliances. We got to meet many people from tons of different places. Most of the teams were rookies, but there were a few second timers. We wish all the competing FTC teams good luck.

We went to the Mindfill robotics scrimmage today. We tweaked the robot multiple times and were able to compete against other teams four times. Since we are a rookie team, the scrimmage was helpful because we got a taste of the competition involved in FTC.
