Before we get into any further details, a big thank you has to go out to 319 BOB and 3930 SMART, for just being awesome partners, and 2648 Infinite Loop for being an amazing host! This last weekend the team took a drive down to Oakland for what has to be one of our favorite off season events, and of course we had a few tricks up our sleeve, including our spring(ish) loaded tote ramp, and our... unconventional method of slowing down the totes as they came out of the chute. But that's not the biggest news for this competition, that's coming later. We have a new team member in charge of scouting! Cass and her helpers did an great job, and our alliance picks worked out amazingly! But, once again, while this news is important, it's still not the biggest for this update! Now we can get into the big news! We won! Everything melded together, the new human player tactic, the ramp, Cass's scouting, and our alliance partners, 319, and 3930, or 3931 as their alternate robot was dubbed. This competition, which we've been a part of for the last 4 years has always been important to us. As it is the first competition of the school year, all of our new recruits actually get to see how the competitions work. Thank you once again, 2648 for putting on this competition, and for giving us an opportunity to let our new recruits try their hand at the game.
Another great time at Mainely Spirit! Thanks to Team 2648 for hosting this fun Maine event again this year! The team finished the qualifying round in 1st place and with the our alliance partners BOB of Alton NH, and SMART of Jay ME we finished the playoffs in 1st! Great team effort from all!
