The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

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


You may remember him from such scenarios as giving you a red card at competition or writing captions in this very contest. Now, he’s Eric H., man behind the camera.

[NPOE] I nominate this one for winning something. My photography skills, however, are worthy of the Burn Award.[/NPOE]

“Next time, let’s try to get Sears as a sponsor.”
“Let me guess: you need to use their warranty on your suit AGAIN.”
“Nope. JCPenney doesn’t sell tools, and I just broke the last of our school’s 5/32” hex keys."

Obviously the triage team in the foreground is well-prepared. The ref is more worried about the other robot’s repairs being completed during the time out.

This is one classy event. Even the mechanics wear suits.

“Your students are really dedicated! Laying on the dirty floor in their tux to fix the robot!”
“Not really, it’s a rental. We always plan to lose the deposit, the expense is an evergreen line item in our team budget. You should see how they trashed the tuxes last year!”

Fortunately @EricH wasn’t the ref, or I’d be getting a few red cards right about now for not even bothering with captioning the photo.

Everyone focus on the team just standing around, not the team diving headfirst into their robot.

Person at the very back: “So, I guess I should go and get the duck tape. That looks pretty bad.”

After the season was over team 1013 realized they had an issue with their organization. They had ten supervisors for each technician.

Team 3294 did not have that issue.

It was cold in the stadium, and they really thought that building a small campfire was a good idea. Regrettably they decided to use a Victor as kindling.

It was just like camping, even down to the simulation of rain. Those fire sprinklers sure do get you wet!

Let’s get judgy!
