And the picture:

As always, the deadline is Saturday at midnight EST, unless you’re lucky or I’m slow (or both).


Guys at the controls: Alright 30 points to the team that caps the volunteer!!!:smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Guy: So this joystick drives the left motor?
Girl: Right.
Guy: Oh, so this joystick drives the left motor?
Girl: No, the right.
Guy: So, right is right?
Girl: Right.
Guy: And left is right?
Girl: No, left.
Guy: Wait, right is left?
Girl: No, right.
Guy: But right is right and left is right…
Girl: No, left.
Guy: Right is left?
Girl: No, I just told you…

Guy at controls: What’s wrong?
Girl at controls: Gah, I got something in my eye.

Volunteer: I think she winked at me!

Little did the MC know that team 945 sent an assassin after him, after a blatant mispronunciation of their name…

Male Spammer: “Watch this” turns on controller and flips switch marked ‘Take Control’
Volunteer: stops
Male Spammer: *moves joystick to the right and volunteer turns right and starts walking.
Volunteer: “What’s going on, I can’t stop myself!”
Male Spammer: moves stick back and volunteer starts walking backwards
Female Spammer: “That’s cool. Let me try.” moves stick in a circular motion
Volunteer: starts walking in circles
Male Spammer: “Oh oh, here comes Dave.” turns ‘Take Control’ switch off
Volunteer: starts walking on his own “That was weird”

Mr. Boudreau, grinning as he crosses the field:
the competition field

  • sometimes, life doesn’t get any better than this. keeps on grinning

Guy in tinted safety glasses: Watch me “cap” the guy in the cap!

the MC: And the third robot comes onto the field! An amazing job by team…wait a minute…Oh yeah, team CREW! Building an android in six weeks is an amazing feat! Not only that, they gave it artificial intelligence!
SPAM robot: Yeah, and I could beat him without programming aboard.

If you look at the diamond plate in front of the middle driver’s station, you can see the number 5, some blue rings, a stoplight, a banana, a tube made of PVC, and what appears to be some sort of fish.

Guy at controls: “What does THIS button do??”

Girl: “STOP IT! You’ve already sent three volunteers to the hospital with your crazy button pushing!”

Volunteer: thinking - Run Away!

WarrenB: Meheheheh! Eric tells me that Josh has the “Cap Dillard” auto mode installed…now all I have to do is to is to get him to stand over by the Auto Loader while I pretend to be the attendant…hmmm

“Hey Gary!..yeah over here…I have some questions about the wiring!”
“…ummmm mind standing a bit closer to the rail?” :smiley:

“Woo-hoo! Volunteering to be the first person capped by a tetra practically guarantees me the Volunteer of the Year Award!” He gloated, little knowing he would also be the first person to have to have a tetra surgically removed…

Hey, don’t tell anybody but our auto mode can find First logos, any where, on any medium, any size, any color, no matter the lighting. It is especially good at finding the logo on volunteer shirts!

Really?!? what can you do with that kind of function?

Well, all kinds of stuff but we are sworn to only use it for good. Tetra/volunteer contact is not using it for good. But it works really well, wanna see?

Warren B: “Hey Dave, nice flowery shirt you have on!


Strange, all of a sudden I have a craving for a Hawaiian SPAM sandwich with Nacho chips.”

“Little did they know that the opposing drivers in red were Cardinal Ximinez, Cardinal Biggles, and Cardinal Fang. The SPAM 'bot might be able to cap in under 8 seconds, but I don’t think the builders were expecting the Spanish Inquisition.”

“He looks a little old to be their baby…”

Warren: Oooh these triangle-thingies will make excellent scrap to build the rack out of!

The infamous “Joystick Stability Test.”

Volunteers needed for dangerous assignment working with youth gangs often wearing their “colors”. This assignment could result in volunteers being capped in drivebys. Tetra-proof clothing will be provided. Apply to FIRST. :yikes:
