2014 Miss Daisy XIII

We had the opportunity to compete on the same field as you guys at FLR. 341 gave us some of the best matches at the regional. I just wish we could’ve had the opportunity to play on the same alliance. Your drive team was incredible and highly strategic. But even more impressive than the robot was the way you guys conduct yourselves. It’s truly inspirational how welcoming and generous you guys were to us at the event. It’s easy for anyone to see why you guys are a HoF team.

I can’t wait to see Daisy XIII at Champs! Good luck!

Been waiting for this pic for so long! You guys always have fascinating robots. Good luck at champs! I’ll be watching the feeds for you.:slight_smile:

This is one solid robot, everyone–especially defensively. There are few better at defense than Daisy. Pratik’s a very smart/talented driver, and Dustin’s coaching is great.

Congrats on the double-banner season!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. And yes, this picture was long overdue…

See you on Newton!
