Well this past weekend was the FIRST FRC Robotics Competition. Our team, Team 2840, worked for 10 weeks straight trying to perfect our robot. The day before the competition we spent from 10am til 4am the next day working on it, it was fun but very tiring. The first few rounds of matches our robot kinda failed and it looked like people thought we just had a glitch-bot. But it was amazing to see their faces once we started working. We ended up being the 36th places robot (compared to 7th last year, it was really discouraging ) but we got picked for the 5th seated alliance . The tournament was best 2 out of 3 and we won the quarter finals 111-93 and 77-63. The entire gym erupted when our robot scored almost 80 points in the first game.
Unfortunately we lost in the semi-finals against the #1 seeded team, like last year. And to make it worse, it was against the same team as last year: team 842...... Man they are really getting on my nerves. But oh well, semi-finals two years in a row not bad owo.
I'm on my second week of break and I'm doing all the homework I got assigned over break (2 AP Chem chapters, one French Book, one Model Bridge to build....) and I'll try to get to the requests as soon as I can, I know its been months and I am sorry. I really need to get on them ^-^"
