Parents Weekend Scrimmage Recap

Apologies for the delay! Our Parent’s Weekend Scrimmage went off without a hitch (mostly). The lights were super dim and we had to enlist our auxiliary lighting to help out. Even so, the light was under 200, but Elise triumphed, churning out a functional color table in under 1.5 hours.

The team had a great showing, with 11 members participating. The new guys all got some experience with photo taking and the pre-game warm up. Photo taking this year is greatly expedited by the ability to stream and save images directly in the TOOL.

The scrimmage itself was a success. We played 2-on-1 for two regulation halves which ended in a 1-1 tie. The bots moved considerably slower than in Graz, but stayed stable for the whole game.

A New Year

Well, it’s a new year for the Northern Bites and we’re gaining momentum. We’ve got a 5-man CS 320 Robotics course led by the fearless Chown-dog himself, 4 newly involved frosh and 2 new sophomores. Add in a brand new MacBook and we’ve got ourselves a team.

On the near horizon, we’ll be having a Parent’s Weekend scrimmage in Smith Union. It’ll be a great chance to showcase our MASSIVE improvements since the last home game (US Open ’09) and a perfect time to give the rookies a sense of how the games actually go.
