pic: Brie Can Fly! sort of...

Brie tried to fly yesterday during the CHS SW district event. She failed miserably. If you look closely, you can see bits of rope in mid air. It was a great photo catch by one of our parents.

This is why we opted to not use paracord.

Hopefully there wasn’t any major damage from the fall, I remember some of the falls from 2013 were brutal on the robots. With the much shorter climb this this year, I would hope that won’t be as much of a problem.

No damage on either fall. The first one was what was posted. The second was because of a sharp edge on the corner of the rope restraining system. It sliced it in two. We went to a thicker rope and had a lot of success after that.
