I am not sure about the other Cornerstone Robotics teams, but our high Driver Skills score so far is 165. We haven’t attempted Programming Skills right now, but we are working on an 85 point autonomous run. Hopefully we will have that completed in time! We can just run our Autonomous and score 30 points (still not enough).
Silver Lake Robotics - from Oconomowoc Wisconsin will be attending with 5 teams. Two of the teams have been winners this year.
2177 - last years driver’s champion, programming champion and member of winning alliance. Winner at Waukesha this year
2177C - Programming skills, driver skills and winning alliance at Waukesha this year
Very nice venue for VEX event - we look forward to seeing all of you in a couple of weeks.
My team and I are really excited to be competing at this competition again. Last year we thought this was one of the best competitions and very well run. We hope to do as well as last year. We are looking forward to the great teams and competitions again this weekend, see you guys there.

Just a quick question for Aftershock from 1200B - I’ve seen a couple of videos showing your robot doing very well, including the 165 point robot skills run. Your strafing proficiency and quick intake were very impressive. However, I did notice a few unsteady rocks and near tips. With your current chassis, have you experienced any severe tipping problems? My team is currently considering a slight shortening of the chassis to assist with cleaning off the walls, but we don’t want to start hacking up aluminum before we know the facts.
I have also seen some videos of your bot It should be a good competition.
Anyway, about our chassis. We only experience some slight rocking when we hit the trough and keep moving. We have yet to tip our robot though. I really like our short chassis. At our last competition, the only match were we might have tipped was because we caught on the high goal and kept moving. We were exited.
No. We have experienced NO tipping over problems with our drivers (on the other hand, if other people drive, they find a way :p).
The SMC robotics club would like to thank Rolling Meadows for hosting the tournament. This was the first time I have gone down to compete and in my opinion, it is one of the best tournaments I have competed in.
Thank you 2177 and 111D for being our awesome alliance partners
Thank you to 323Z for being B and E’s alliance partner
