Just remember that those aren't life saving devices.

Regardless I feel like this strategy was employed numerous times over the weekend.

I love how robotics kids think using innertubes in the pool is considered unique after using them as robot game pieces.

Did anyone grab those pool noodles in the background for any non-bumper uses?

The tubes are much more fun, when they are used as sleds, but seeing as all the snow is gone i guess you have to use them for something. and what better than pool toys.

I can't help but notice the trend in robotics kids to be skinny... I guess thin would be a better word.

I thought about doing that one day when I was in Wal-Mart and saw noodles actually... Now that I have some FIRST tubes [currently in my pool] I just gotta get some flame fabric and pool noodles

Next you'll see a model of the rack in the pool with FIRSTers being the robots using the noodles as bumpers and the tubes as tubes playing Rack 'N' Roll

We have some of them in a pool as well, they are cheaper than actual pool floats if you think about it and are already on hand

Forget Pool Basketball or Pool Volleyball, it's time for some Pool Rack n' Roll!

Bonus points for the first picture with a Rack (partial or full) next to a pool!

Pfffft.

Wake me up when your 'bot is chilling out along side you.



Looks like fun, I just wish it was warm enough to swim up here.
