2016 North Star Regional Tournament - Semifinalists
After 6 weeks of build and several more weeks building driver experience with our practice bot, we finally made it to our regional tournament. The first day, we made numerous adjustments to our robot based off of the practice robot's performance.
After the first day of qualifying matches, we were ranked in 4th place. On Saturday, we only had one more qualifying round before alliance selection. We were in 5th place alliance captain before getting bumped up to 4th.
With help from our lead scout, we chose two great teams, Orange Crush and Team Neutrino, as our alliance partners. After an incident where a chain slipped and caused shearing on one of our gearboxes, we had to bring in team R.U.S.T. as a substitute robot. Still going strong, our alliance made it to semifinals before we were beat by the winning alliance.
We had an amazing three days at the North Star regional this year. Thanks to all the volunteers, teams, and mentors for making this possible and to our alliance partners for such a strong performance!
