Team 1177 and 1261E (my team) were very good, but both robots encountered crippling problems in the finals, some of which includes stuck claws, and a motor wiring coming out of the microcontroller port. We defeated 1235B, 1235’s twin, in Semi-Finals.
Thanks for the kind words Sunny, we were please you guys selected our team even though the rankings showed us finishing in next to last place after the qualifying rounds. That truly shows that a good bit of all of this is the luck of the draw in the matchups.
By the way… can you explan how after we whipped up on 1235 & 3536S as the score shows in this picture, how come we lost that last match…!
Outstanding job. You had a lot of very happy campers.
Now we just gotta figure out how to stop those crazy catapults …
Here’s a video of the 2 sister catapults going head to head. One had an experienced driver, the other an in-experienced driver - look at what a difference it makes … They ran against each other several times, did not ever play with each other - that would have been ridiculous …
Attached are some pictures of the infamous SUNNY - you can see the terror in his eyes as he faces down the catapult … (Sunny is in the gray shirt, and blue jeans)
Not sure if Sunny posted this elsewhere, but since this appears to be the place and they’re not here, so I’m posting the link here.
Here are some pictures from the event. I just got the video a few days ago, so I still have some compressing to do so they’ll be on YouTube in a few days (at best). If not, I’m sure Sunny will poke me to death (maybe).
