pic: 2177 supporting 830 & 1094

When I was the extra pit crew person waiting for one of 525’s finals matches, I couldn’t resist this photo opportunity.

i love this picture i thought we were going to fall when i saw are robot swing back and worth on top of your arm.For a rookie team you guys/ girls rocked,i hope to see your team again.

p.s i realy like your teams website, it was very organized.

Awesome pic!!
Thanks for sharing.


My husband and I were just talking about this round this morning. Wow, wow, wow! I am so glad you got a picture. To me, this was FIRST at its absolute best. Could we get a copy with a higher resolution for our scrap book and website?

just looking at that picture makes me uncomfortable. i dont want to think about what would happen to me if i drove the robot off of a ramp. the robot is pretty robust and would surive. i’m not so durable

wasnt that the one with the rat packs fabric or was that another shot

That was an awesome match, I was watching from the side. “Come on 1094, just drive a little harder! Nooo they bottomed out!! Oh here comes 830, yeah they’re good pushers, they’ll push em on! NO WAIT DONT GO TOO FAR!! HEY I think they can balance!! OOoohhhhhhh!!!”

One of the most exciting ramp/lifter moments all day, close with the first time 1625 showed their double lifter !

What amazed all three of our teams was 830’s low-end torque… the final “push” broke all four zip ties that held on 2177’s top platform. You can see the offset under the “0” in 830.

830 and 1094 – great job, we loved working with you!

Not to toot a certain company’s horn, but…

830 was sporting two (2) Andy-Mark servo transmissions. No custom gearbox. AM is HQS (high quality stuff)

ON another note, its good to see my old team finally get out of the quarterfinals. Congrats to this alliance for pulling the upset. How many bonus points were given? 15 and 15?

Great picture. It is now my desktop background.

Yup, 15 and 15.

I couldn’t make it to the event, so I was watching the webcast. Since the frames per second was lower, I went from seeing my team on the other side of the field to on the ramp. Gave my heart quite a jump… :eek:

It was definitely great to see us make it to the semis. Thanks for being great alliance partners, 2177 and 1094!

this picture is hilarious, I loved our Alliance! This match was nothing short of amazing, we loved working with you 1094 and 830!! Keep in touch :slight_smile:

That was by far the most gut-wrenching moment of the entire day - i thought for sure 1094 was gonna fall and 830 wasn’t going to be high enough! It was an awesome alliance - way to go guys!

(If you want to see the three matches we played in the quarter finals, check out http://www.therobettes.com/index.php?q=gallery&g2_itemId=1060, and check our website over the next few weeks for all the rest of the video we took at the competition!)

That has got to be one of the scariest pictures I’ve ever seen here on CD.

Great job :yikes:

yea i thought we would fall but we didnt and yea we will defenatly keep in touch whos all going to IRI this year (i think we are and yea were bringing fish boy with us)

I don’t think I really want to get on your ramp any time soon.:yikes:

to the robettetes if you would not mind could you send me a picture of your team logo.

that was another match. actually i think that was the final match of the semi finals and we would have won had it not been for the fabric! lol! oh well! I love this picture. i already have bragged about it to all my friends! great job everyone!

I have to say, that was definitely one of the most exciting matches I’ve ever coached. We were all the way on the other side of the field with under 30 seconds left to play. I saw 1094 was having trouble getting up 2177’s ramp, and told Jon, our driver: “Come back and give them a push!”. Of course, Jon’s idea of a “push” was to hit them at full speed in high gear, but, it did get the job done. It certainly made for an exciting finish!

Anyways, I’d also like to thank our alliance partners (2177 and 1094) for one of the most exciting set of elimination matches I’ve played in. It truly was a team effort from all of us, and that’s something you don’t see too often. You guys were great, and I hope to see you all again sometime.

whos ramp i am thinking about sugesting to put some form of traction on there

haha thats awesome someone got a picture of it, i could only watch from the stands and all i saw were the refs laughing, but considering our entire trip to St. Louis this has to be on the top list of best memories
