GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY!
Today is the district event, hosted at Auburn Mountainview High School. Everyone on the team is super excited to finally see how our robot ( the powder coated one 😉 ) will perform. I heard it can stack up to 18 totes.
The pits are bustling with both people and energy. Students scramble to make sure everything is working and stable. Scouts are inquiring about other robots. This is it. Build season was a lot of fun, but now its time for the show!
As of 9:25 AM PST, I am sitting on the stands and watching the practice matches. Looking around, I see a number of teams, all with different colors, blending into one big group: the super awesome FIRST community. Feet are tapping and Rosella is playing Mario Kart on her phone. She’s really good at it! Oh man, looks like I’m getting distracted— I just have too much energy!
