Team 236 & 2067 had a picnic following parades & a car-show that the teams and robots participated in. Who would have thought there was an alternative use for keepers and ringers?
Just remember that those aren’t life saving devices.
Regardless I feel like this strategy was employed numerous times over the weekend.
I was waiting for these pictures to pop up on CD all summer.
I love how robotics kids think using innertubes in the pool is considered unique after using them as robot game pieces. :yikes:
Did anyone grab those pool noodles in the background for any non-bumper uses?
way to go. were those placed in the pool autonomously? (sorry, i had nothing wittier to say…)
The tubes are much more fun, when they are used as sleds, but seeing as all the snow is gone i guess you have to use them for something. and what better than pool toys.
Hey! Look, Dave: it is a water game!
I can’t help but notice the trend in robotics kids to be skinny… I guess thin would be a better word.
I thought about doing that one day when I was in Wal-Mart and saw noodles actually… Now that I have some FIRST tubes [currently in my pool] I just gotta get some flame fabric and pool noodles
Next you’ll see a model of the rack in the pool with FIRSTers being the robots using the noodles as bumpers and the tubes as tubes playing Rack ‘N’ Roll :rolleyes:
We have some of them in a pool as well, they are cheaper than actual pool floats if you think about it and are already on hand;)
Forget Pool Basketball or Pool Volleyball, it’s time for some Pool Rack n’ Roll!
Bonus points for the first picture with a Rack (partial or full) next to a pool!
Wake me up when your 'bot is chilling out along side you.
Looks like fun, I just wish it was warm enough to swim up here.
yeah last weekend i got into my pool too… think the difference here though is that my tube is black…
lol… having fun with game pieces
During the build season there were several days of snow intermixed with a little sleet. Needless to say the snow packed really nicely for sledding.
The keepers will make a great way to spread FIRST as we fly down the Battlefield hill next year.
The secret is the six-week pizza/Krispy Kreme diet
What’s funny is the idea of using Rack ‘N’ Roll tubes for anything other than Rack ‘N’ Roll never once crossed my mind before I saw this picture.
