They have tanks in Canada?! I thought the phrase "Canadian Military" was an oxymoron

Nice job guys, another excellent robot.

DANG. That's a pretty robot. Unfortunately, I won't be seeing it unless we make our way to St. Louis. Good luck!

Like.

If there was any team that I thought might not do a floor pickup this year it was going to be 1503 . Nice looking bot there.

For the record, the green bumpers are our demo/practice set.

Our competition bumpers are legal.

Reminds me of 1918's robot, which was really cool. Great robot, good work

Looking forward to seeing you guys at Worlds.

Re: pic: 1503 Spartonics 2012 Robot -

If you are a typical US high school student, might be interesting reading up on what actually happened during the War of 1812. As the US spent most of that war getting beaten up by the British, we tend to gloss over it in US History.

(Hint: The hashtag #OccupyDC would've been all over twitter.)

Your team could have the best drivers and the best drive coach out there all complementing each other perfectly. However, if you don't have a great strategy to go out on the field with your team will only be successful in certain situations. If you have both, you're pretty much guaranteeing a win every single match. I feel with the great ability you have Nick, your strategy and assessments will only be more beneficial for the team.

Also, great robot and good luck this season.

1503 is Canadian. The one and only country to burn down the white house, probably another thing forgotten in the history books.

Never though of commemorating a robot to the war of 1812 though, even though a lot of the war was fought in Windsor where my team is from lol.
