Northville District

548 was busy yesterday setting up the field and using the last of our unbag time. We're ready and excited to compete at our highschool, who else is coming?

Re: Northville District

470 is stoked to be there, it's our first competition with our shooter on, and we're really hoping to take the field by storm.

Re: Northville District

Just a taste of what's to come:


(573, 3098, 67)


...and that was a practice match.

Re: Northville District

Great!

Can you prevent it from being a 6 or 7 ball auton, should there be more basketballs on the bridge? I think your collector can take only 3 basketballs, right?

Would it be bad if it was a 6 or 7 ball auton? Theoretically isn't it a 3 point penalty for each extra ball over the 3 in your hopper while every ball you score gives you 6 points? Strategies aimed at incurring penalties will get you carded but I don't think something like that would be ruled as a strategy aimed at getting a penalty more of a strategy that could incur penalties sometimes and it doesn't actually hurt.

Interesting idea, but sadly it comes down to timing as well. We are pushing the clock just to get those 5 balls in the air. Always possible though...

Re: Northville District

Just wanted to shoot out a couple of thank yous. First our alliance members 67 and 3656. Easiest triple balances I have seen yet. 67 your design and execution are flawless thanks for picking us. 3656 how were you still there at 24? Good Auton and robot that fit the game plan perfectly!

Finally special thanks to 830 the Rat Pack. They had more volunteers and stayed later after the competition to help tear down and clean up. Thanks for helping me get home before sunday!

Re: Northville District

I wanted to echo Brendan's sentiments. Thank you to all of the teams for a great competition, and to all of our dedicated volunteers for making this such a smoothly run event! On behalf of the entire planning committee, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Re: Northville District

Great event! We would like to give a big thanks to 573 for the selection! We gave it a good fight but I seriously doubt anybody will ever beat Team 67!! That was loads of fun!

Re: Northville District

Just wanted to say thank you to all the volunteers and Northville High School for making this another great FiM event. This was a perfect venue, incredible high school, large pits, large arena, plenty of stands, etc...

548 - Our sometimes machine shop mates. We obviously had some prior knowledge about your robot since we saw it before the competition season started. We continued to put tests out there and ask questions about your robot. Through out the entire weekend you guys answered every one. Score consistently in Hybrid...check. Score over defense...check. Triple Balance with us...check. Put down the bridge...check. You guys were awesome to work with. I'm very happy we finally got to play with you. Congratulations on winning another Chairman's award too. What an awesome weekend to be a RoboStang.

3656 - We had you guys pretty high up on our list. We got a little worried during that run on "wide bots" during alliance selection. Luckily we were able to get such a great alliance partner. You did every thing we asked of you. I am sure your machine was capable of so much more if we needed it. An excellent second year team. I will look forward to seeing 3656 continue to improve in the future.

66, 308, and 703 - You guys were tenacious...defeating both the #2 and #3 alliances. 703's defense was intense. We have some battle scars (skid marks, torn bumpers, scrapped up lexan and vinyl from trying to get into position to triple balance. Congrats on being Finalists.

Thanks to anyone else who commented about or team or our robot. You all had such great things to say about us, most of the time I didn't even know what to say.
