Day 1 Review

Our pit is setup, the robot is unbagged and we have passed inspection.  We were even able to get a practice match on the competition fields.

All systems on the robot are working and we are please with the speed of the robot. We missed placed the gear in autonomous by a very small amount. This was due to some tracking adjustment code meant for the practice robot. The pit team is replacing the retaining clips on the drive train in the morning as a preventative measure.

We currently do not know our match schedule. As of the close of the pits last night 29 out of 40 teams had passed inspection. Opening ceremonies will start at 10:30am with qualification matches starting immediately afterwords.

Load in Day

Today is load in day for the FIM Saint Joseph event!

We will be loading up our pit gear, tool boxes, spare parts and robot. The doors will open at the Saint Joseph High School Field house at 4pm with the pits opening up at 5pm. Our pit location is the same as last year. We are hoping for a fast inspection to allow for some practice time.

We hope to see you there. Keep checking back on our website for updates throughout the event.

Thank you to our sponsors, team parents and community supporters!

Semis Match Three

As the semi-finals concluded our alliance ended up losing to the Red Alliance. This has been a really great season and without the help of our sponsors and supporters none of this would’ve been possible. Thank you to all who participated in this journey to St. Louis!

The scores are as follows:

Red Alliance: 230pts (opponents)

Blue Alliance: 127pts (our alliance)

Thanks to everyone for this great season and the opportunity for us to participate!
