Go to Post There are two ways to compete in this world; you can rise above you opponent, or you can drag them down. I'd like to think that we're wise enough in the world of FRC to be constantly evaluating ways to learn from others in an effort to rise above. Karthik tjf

Go to Post "only YOU can stop magic smoke fires" aJASONt_angles frcguy

Go to Post They were using Victor 888s because they were lying around and forgot to plug in one of the fan wires. In their defense, it was only a small fire, no one got hurt, it went out when they killed the power, and because of the previous things it was kinda funny. arichman1257 Hess1113
Go to Post In their defense, it was only a small fire arichman1257 DonRotolo

Go to Post This year's game was very much like basketball would be, if every shot was worth 1/3 of one point, there was no backboard, you had to play with a wiffle ball, and you could score 40 points by carrying a sandwich plate across the court to your buddy six times. mrnoble Jared Russell
Go to Post Watching the field crew build a tarp out of a roll of plastic and some ethernet cables was one of the most fascinating things I've seen at a Championship. Jared Russell ctt956
