To all on 1396:

You guys were great. I had the pleasure of being up on stage with you guys for a match. Despite the problems you had with your bot the drivers, coach and human player were high spirited and fun to work with. Congrats on your Championship Judges award and hope to see you guys again next year.

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

Here is the 10 hour robot Team 1396 built on Thursday.

The story is posted elsewhere, but I'll repeat it here.

Team 1396 arrived on Thursday to an empty pit.
No crate!
They frantically began tracking down where their crate was. It had arrived in Atlanta, but through a paperwork mixup the robot had been re-shipped. The Team finally received a phone call late Thursday night from home telling them their robot had re-appeared on the school loading dock.

In the meantime, without wasting time waiting for the crate to be found the students proceeded to build a second robot. 1396 had brought Bosch intended to be used to rebuilt their arm and parts to rebuild their drivetrain. FIRST Spare Parts dumped victors, spikes, joysticks, compressor, pneumatics, and other parts needed to put a robot together. Surrounding teams came over all day Thursday, Friday, and Saturday contributing parts like the Robot Controller along with their expertise and labor to help 1396 get that robot up and running in time to compete on Friday.

They finished Archimedes in 33 place with a 4-3-0 record and received a Judges Award! Discovery Channel followed them around and did a story on them.

I'm proud of the way FIRST teams got together and helped get this team back on their feet , and I feel very privileged to know the members of Team 1396 who didn't allow such a potential tragedy to conquer their spirit or defeat them. They simply rose to the challenge and did what had to be done, and in the process probably had the best time possible at Nationals!

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

that is the coolest thing, A new first for FIRST

but im worried now

this is gonna be fuel for procrastinators

I can hear some teams now - "we dont need to start building the robot until the last week - didnt you hear about that team at the championship who built there bot in one day"

in fact, we could just ship the KOP and build it when we get there

but seriously - what you have done sets a new example for Can-Do spirit

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

wow when it rained it poured for this team....we were right next to them in the pits. They were leaving for a match, took the robot off their table, took no more than two steps away when the entire table crashed to the floor....batteries, chargers, a SOLDERING IRON that was on still....it was pretty bad looking....gj guys you put in a lot of solid work.

Thumbs up Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

1396 (Tottenville HS, SI) is a ROOKIE NYC team.
If it wasn't for all the great FIRST teams helping at the Championship Pit,
it would have be a disaster and a horrific experience for these rookies.

From all the other NYC FIRST Teams, a big “THANK YOU” to all the teams who gave their time and parts to help 1396. All of you show exactly what FIRST is all about.

BTW- that's a cool looking robot, especially in 10 hours.

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

I saw this robot on Archimedes a few times, and it got better every time I saw it.

Any team that can get something running that fast deserves respect. And I bet if they had another day or two, they coulda been hanging!

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

I just want to say congratulations to this team and all who helped them...

AND...

I want to publicly post an apology from my team 237 for "beating" on their robot during a practice match on Thursday. In the alliance stations that first practice day, our driver wanted to try and block a team. Unfortunately they did not hear about this team's plight and chose them to try and see if we could block them. This unfortunately led to a shoving match against the "one day" bot and had a few teams asking why we "beat" on them.

Again, we are sorry for this - my whole team in the stands were yelling at our drivers to stop, but they did not hear at first.

Sorry for any harm this may have caused the robot or the team who was so much down on their luck so to speak.

And thanks to this team, for it proves that scouting is never done.. If we had gone against this team for a bio of the robot from a previous competition, then we would have been shocked on Friday and Saturday when we went against them..

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

I remember seeing this robot when i was on my way to the quaterfinals and thinking "that wasnt the same robot i saw them compete w/ at the NYC regional". It wasnt till they won the judges award that i found out the story.
Congrats to everyone on 1396 and who ever may have helped them acomplish building "the one day bot".

Also congrats on winning Rookie Allstar at NYC, and Judges award at Nats. Good luck in the future

Wow...now THAT'S impressive.

One of my fondest memories from this year was helping 507 go from a chassis that wasn't moving to a functioning robot. Still...that pales in comparison to this.

Congrats to 1396 - it sounds like you managed to pull off a great thing.

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

When the finals were starting and it was said that Archemedies was the only division with a bot that was built in one day, my teammate turned to me and said "Jee, even WE don't procrastinate THAT bad."

When the told the story of what actaully happened when presenting hte judges award, the only thing in my head was "....wow. Holy crap. Wow."

Honestly, I'm impressed. It's the single most impressive thing I've encountered in FIRST.

Though, if anyone could do it, it'd be a FIRST team.

Congrats again. I'm most impressed at how you didn't get depressed and upset, you sprang to action and built a competitive bot on Thursday.
