|Mentors need to be sure that the team is on track to have a working robot ready. Students can do almost everything, but they need help watching the calender. Even if your ideas turn out bad, if your robot is inspectable and running when you arrive at your first event, anything can happen. - AcesPease [more]|
One of the FIRST photographers took this picture for us while at the Midwest regional. At the time this was taken, the opposing alliance had called a time out (for a reason I can't remember). Our coach had the idea for us to all go sit out on the field with our robot, and our head scout had the idea to take a picture.
So you know who everybody is:
Front row, left to right: Allie R., Head Scout; Marc R., Driveteam Coach; Allison M., Functional Team Captain; Taylor C., Robot Operator.
Back row, left to right: RALFF, Robot; Alex S./Q/Qbranch, Robot Driver/Programmer
Thanks to our fantastic alliance partners (1114, 2041) and EVERYBODY at Midwest for making it a great FIRST time for our team in Chicago!

That's an awesome photo!
I also love how the 24 in 1024 resembles Jeff Gordon's car number Not that I would notice a lil thing like that lol. But that picture is pretty nice!

Thanks! It's my favorite photo we have of our team this year yet... sadly, everyone in this picture (including RALFF) is graduating this year.
Do you (whoever you are that might read this) ever sit on the field with your team during a nothing-going-on-period? It's pretty awesome to see what the robots see.
Again, thanks for the props for the photo,
