Re: <G39> Pinning

As the coach of a defensive team at SVR, I agree that the pin calls at SVR were horrible! We were one of the better defenders there, we didn't pin often on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday we kind of realized they weren't calling pins and started to take advantage of it. We could have a pin on for a good 2-3 seconds before the refs even started counting, hopefully they call them better at Davis

Sorry, I just couldn't resist...
Amen.....I also like the good old days....We didn't use bumpers till we were forced to.....I would rather not have them.

But you had the advantage of building your bot with a hammer and anvil and the kids today have to use those lightweight water jet things. And since they don't have to use theirs to pull a plow in the off-season like the early bots did then they are much more lightweight! Playing fields outdoors in the snow and the only field faults were when you ran out of gas!...ahh the old days

Re: <G39> Pinning

The one time I went to IRI, my folks and I went up north about an hour or so, to an area known as West Lafayette. We also went to a nearby historic battle site, where there just so happened to be a tractor show. One tractor had a blacksmithing shop on it (or rather, WAS the shop), so we took a picture and brought it to competition, saying that we'd brought a machine shop.
