The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

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


Is this the 2005 or 2021 season? I can hardly tell! Each team is socially distanced!

“Oh, look, a camera. Maybe one day someone will get one of those things to actually work on a robot.”


“Sooo… Do you think that safety advisors noticed that Frank isn’t wearing safety glasses?”
“Nahhhh… He’s the one with his face in the robot”

“Sure you can social distance, if you only have 3 robots at an event!”

Inside the building? Still technically on site developing. Any space becomes a practice field with enough determination.

The annual CD caption contest meet and greet is a high attendance event as shown above


What can this strange device be?
When I touch it, it gives forth a movement
It’s got wires that vibrate and lifts objects
What can this thing be that I’ve found?
See how it sings like a sad heart
And joyously screams out its pain
Sounds that build high like a mountain
Or notes that fall gently like rain
I can’t wait to share this now wonder
The people will all see its light
Let them all make their own robots
The Priests praise my name on this night

Shout out to all Rush fans…

Guy in the black tee shirt, " No I think we will get it fixed soon. We don’t want to end up on the wall of dead robots."

What’s that guy over doing with the camera?
I think he’s a spy for FRC Team 118.

To be socially distant, we have to actually be apart from each other. Just having no one interested in our robot doesn’t count.

“…Are you serious right now”
“What do you mean 'the gears are broken’??”

We haven’t changed at all in 15 years :stuck_out_tongue:

Here we see Robots in Space.
(“Danger Will Robinson”)

Black shirt: “Why did the robot cross the road?”
Striped shirt: “I don’t know, why?”
Black shirt: “It was programmed to be a chicken!”

It was at this point that the audience left.

[npoe] credit to @Ari_2412 for the joke [/npoe]

If you’re going to quote me, at least quote me correctly.

The answer goes:
“Because I programmed it to be a chicken”

New Entry (thanks for waiting for me Billfred…)

In their passion and enthusiasm for the game, it took them several hours to realize that the field they were playing on was, in fact, not yet there.
