Coach on team #64, Gila Monsters, from Highland High School and Genreal Motors Desert Proving Grounds.

Team 64 is looking for teams that can go over or under the rail. Did anyone try it? Where you successful?

Our team 56 can go UNDER the rail and we can also still score big balls, go over the bridge, balance a goal w/o us on the bridge, raise/lower the bridge, and tow a goal around…

Team 221 Mi roboworks can go under the bar. I know this because my older brother is one of the project engineers. They do very well going under it.

221 probably could’ve done it with that little monster they had last year. that baby was a beast, i bet they could have.

they had experience towards this years game with that one (i am speaking of the post-basket design of course)… no wonder…they will probably be awesome at it.
here’s to markesino, lapp, and ridley (hugs her collection of 221 t-shirts)… good luck guys.

You bet 221 is going under the bar! Having pulled a few all-nighters this weekend (I only got home an hour ago), we’ve finished all but a few special “highlights.” Watch out, this year’s bot is fast, strong, and lookin sharp!

Wish I had some pics to post, but I’m afraid I don’t have any. We’ll get some on here eventually, though.

Best of luck to everyone, and for those of you going to GLR, we’ll see you there!

Team 57 can go under the bar. Well in one configuration, anyways. That configuration also has two goal grabbing, balancing, and possibly ramp control, depending on what the team did while I was away…

Our robot has gone over the bar the few times we’ve tried it in practice. It’s hard to explain how it does it and we don’t have any video. Just…think pole vaulting without actually going airborne, if that helps. :slight_smile:
