Go to Post FIRST is difficult and it is challenging, but you aren’t necessarily required to go off and build an 8 motor drivetrain and 4 motor / 8 pneumatic piston arm mechanism for the heck of it when a 2 motor non-shifting drivetrain and 2 motor arm does just as good a job. - Bill Gold [more]

Rule Changes
We will be borrowing the rule changes adapted at IRI this year. Thank you to the IRI committee for developing clear rules that, in our opinion, helped improve gampelay for FIRST Power Up.

The changes are as follows:


G05 - Don’t overextend yourself.
ROBOTS may not extend more than 16 in. beyond their FRAME PERIMETER. This rule doesn’t apply to a ROBOT fully within its PLATFORM ZONE during the ENDGAME. **Momentary, minimal excursions (approximately less than 3 seconds and less than 6 inches) outside of the PLATFORM ZONE during ENDGAME will not result in violations of this rule.**

G09. Launching POWER CUBES is okay, but keep it short.
A ROBOT is not permitted to launch POWER CUBES except:
B. When any part of its BUMPERS are contacting a FENCE, **either directly or transitively through a POWER CUBE**, or any part of the ROBOT is intersecting the vertical planes defined by the SWITCH FENCE, and it is attempting to place a POWER CUBE on the nearest PLATE of that FENCE’s SWITCH

G22. One POWER CUBE per ROBOT.
ROBOTS may not control more than one (1) POWER CUBE at a time.
B. “Herding” (Intentionally pushing a POWER CUBE to a desired location or direction) is in violation of this rule. **This rule does not apply to a ROBOT breaking the plane of their own Exchange Zone.**

G25. PLATES are moved by POWER CUBES, not ROBOTS.
Except via the weight of placed POWER CUBES, ROBOTS may not directly or transitively cause or prevent the movement of PLATES **in a way that is beneficial to their own alliance (examples include holding a PLATE at neutral or through holding a PLATE in a manner which earns their alliance points). If a REFEREE or FTA determines damage is occurring to the SCALE, the offending ROBOT will be DISABLED.**


See everyone there!
-Brando

TJ^2 had a great time at Beantown Blitz with both our robots, Triple Stack and Tsunami.

If anyone has video of quals 18, please share. Our robots were on the same alliance in what is now known as "the double dump". Both of TJ^2's robots (88 and 9999) fell over in incredibly dramatic style. But, their alliance (thanks, 4151) was still able to win the match. Something I'll remember for a long time.

I believe in this team. I know we can make an awesome winning robot. I know we can continue to work on that robot and improve it over the course of the season. I know we are capable of truly amazing things. I've seen it happen. And I know I'm about to see it happen again.

The archive is still on FUN's Twitch channel for the next 5 weeks. It is up to the individual event to have copy to archive to YouTube.
