Go!

So just behind these curtains is where dreams are made, and more often than not, broken, just like the robot when it falls after scaling the tower.

Teams with student-built robots, teams with team-built robots, teams with mentor-built robots, and teams with sponsor built robots, each inspiring in its own way. Koko Ed shows us just how big the FRC tent is.

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #719

For teams and their students, mentors, and robots, volunteers, spectators, and all others at the event when they needed some time without hearing another Qualcomm commercial...or when the drive teams had to queue for a match, which also allowed them to avoid Qualcomm commercials.

The Qualcomm-Comercial-Free Zone and FRC Team Queueing Area presented by [SPONSOR REDACTED] was an excellent feature at the FIRST Championship, and will be missed.
