Joe Matt, Jeff Rodriguez, Jeff W, and Craig Hickman join us for this long, long, long FIRSTcast epsidoe. We discuss first week regionals, 1519 and their interchangeable bots, The Rhode Warriors, FIRST Over drive ain’t that bad, the field divider and how it creates a pepper’s ghost effect, Craig’s new team idea and predictions, use velcro kids, and turn back those clocks!

We’re working on updating the site, getting show notes up, and working on some new things. The RSS feed works again, though we are not in iTunes.

iPhone/iPod touch scouting

i knew you guys would get around to this eventually

Thanks, now it’s time to listen to this masterpiece

Hey, it turned out pretty good!

Thanks for having me on there guys, it was actually quite fun.

haha nice I got plugged in
pushed me to release an update too

I really enjoyed that.
And I’ve talked to the team: post-season we’re absolutely down to push our catapult to its limits: bowling balls, vex robots, full-size robots, etc. Unfortunately it’s rather optimized for 10lb objects.

Thanks to Jeff and Joe for having me as a guest. It was a good time… thanks!

Enjoyable listen! Jeff you’re pretty cheap with your $20 there… :stuck_out_tongue:

Hey, I’m still a poor college student. $20 goes a long way for me.

Another great episode! Can’t wait for the next one!
