Competencies and FLL

Right now, we are preparing for helping host the Vacaville High School dual FLL competitions on November 16th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Everyone on the team is learning a little bit from each committee (electrical, design, programming, mechanical) and is getting their required tasks for that committee checked off by Mr. Green or any team expert in that committee field. We are also preparing for hosting the Vanden VEX competition on December 13th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Everyone on the team, especially the rookies, are getting settled in on the team.

CalGames, at least our results, was similar to that of Capitol City Classic. During the competition, our sidecar burned out. We missed two matches. Despite these setbacks, we ended as the #7 seed. We were picked by the #4 seeded WildHats, Team 100. They were a great alliance partner. We won the first one but lost the second. After the second one, the WildHats' robot's main breaker broke, and a substitute robot was put in. We lost the third match, and in turn did not make it to semifinals. We still had a great time. We fixed our autonomous period, so our robot didn't smash into the low goal when scoring a ball into it and didn't have the CIM motors reset.
Now we have offseason projects to complete. We are considering making a Trebuchet for the Travis Air Force Base Halloween party. We are also making a battery cart, which is our #1 priority. Also on our to-do list is to remake Cannonbot and Chairbot.

Go RoboVikes.
