Our Rochester Rally was yesterday and it was a resounding success!
The field crew was assisted by Mr. Pizzo, many students and mentors and was finally completed at about 1:30 am on Saturday AM. Thanks to Mentor Amy and Student Leader Jason and crew, it looked great! And thanks to Team Founder, Kim, for the midnight brownie snack to give us the energy to finish the field!
The teams started arriving Friday night and early Saturday morning and were given a chance to run simulated matches as well as have time for open practice on the field. Our robot made it to the field as well, and balanced on the bridge, climbed over the wall and scored a few balls during practice runs!
Many teams took advantage of our shop, our crackerjack programmers and Thundermart to get their robots running.
Our opening speakers from Harris and Tenrehte Technologies helped make Rally a class event!
FLR Lead Robot Inspector, Rob, spent times with the teams making sure they would have legal robots at the Finger Lakes Regional (March 8-10).
The FREE CAKE was great as always!
