I went to a week one regional last year against majority of these teams (Lone Star) and the best advice I gave my team was to not be intimated. This is the first interaction with the competition robot since bag day for everyone. So everyone is going to be working out kinks and its a matter of who can get a working robot and come up with a winning strategy the fastest.
Also go site seeing in San Antonio. There’s a lot of attractions there that are awesome. It’s a great city and you can learn a lot about Texas history and culture there.
I’m heading down to San Antonio today and hang out by the Riverwalk for a few days til I help with field setup and load in on Wednesday.
It’s gonna be like 82 on Sunday. I probably won’t know what to do with myself.
2386 is coming down from canada this year for the Alamo regional and it looks like were gonna have lots of fun. The hospitality we have gotten thus far from teams down in texas has been great so far and it will be nice to see some warmer weather for a change looking like some great competition and we cant wait!
Down below are links to either a photo or a video of a team currently attending Alamo. Hopefully, these videos and photos will give you all a relative idea of what to expect from Alamo. If you can find any more team photos or video message me and I’ll expand the list. Have fun scouting.
Is Spyder messed up, or are the assist and total scores really low? It shows Alamo at 83 average winning score and 150 as the high assist score. Central Illinois has 120 & 430, respectively. You guys playing ferocious defense or is something else going on?
Although I can’t comment on specifics as I wasn’t there, it seemed like there were a lot of weird things going on from the referee/scorekeeping side of things. There were times where it seemed like robots were waiting 30 seconds after scoring a ball for their pedestal to be lit up for the next cycle to begin.
