Please join me in congratulating the Robotics team on their very strong showing at River Rage this past Saturday!
From the Coach:
We worked hard on our costumes, and it definitely paid off as we won Best Robot Costume for our headless chicken!
Thanks to everyone who helped with this project, including the Lamberts for getting us the straw hats! And to the group who made the chicken tail, as it was SOOOOO cool!
Our team was selected from the Great Pumpkin by our good friends the NuTrons (FRC Team 125 from Boston), and then we added Air Strike to our alliance (FRC Team 78 from Newport, RI).
We lost our first elimination match, but won every match after that, and we had the privilege of knocking out some big names teams from the competition.
We made it to the finals, but 78 had an unfortunate accident and basically lost their drive train! That meant we replaced 78 with our other good friends TJ-Squared (FRC Team 88 from Bridgewater, MA). We put a really good fight in the finals, but lost in two rounds to a very powerful alliance. It included Windham Wind Up (FRC Team 3467 from Windham, NH), Chop Shop (FRC Team 166 from Merrimack, NH), and Mechanical Mayhem (FRC Team 1519 from Milford, NH).
We were VERY excited with our second place finish and our Best Robot Costume awards. It marked the end of another awesome FRC season.
Now, we officially say goodbye to Mike, the Headless Chicken, our Rebound Rumble robot. We look forward to the 2013 season, and we hope it is filled with even more success! 69 days until Kick-Off!!!!
Thanks to everyone who helped make this season amazing, the mentors, the volunteers, the parents, and the students!
