The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.


You know you’ve spent too much on the robot when the parts stack up taller than a senior.

This stack is wheely tall

This very superstitious team changed out their wheels after every match they lost. It seems wasteful until you realize this picture was taken after two district events, a regional, district championships, and the championship event. Then one realizes just how impressively small that stack actually is.

Team member walks out with stack for alliance selection

“On our team we do something very special we dedicate a wheel to our sponsors that was used at some part of the season and included…”

Picks up the first wheel

“Thank you to…”

The FRC Shish-ka-bob… and other failed fund raisers.

When you’re bored and your OCD kicks in

The wheels of the 'bot stack up, up, up!

The Tower of Babel didn’t get to far before HQ shut the season down.

Back in the day when the wheels wore out before the balls did


“This wheel was used on the shooter, so was this one, so was this one, so was… (goes on for a while)”
“But which one was used to drive?”
“Uh, the steering wheel?”

For ever more, the team was alternatively known as the “Gandalfs”, and their new mascot an image of the students holding the wheel staff screaming “you shall not pass!”

The shameless attempt to get BaneBots to sponsor the team.

They received an offer, buy 60 get one free.
