The robot is packed in the car, the team has their boarding passes in hand. In less than 24 hours we'll all be in Tacoma WA ready to soak in all of the excitement that is the FTC Super Regionals.
It's been a crazy couple of weeks. We rebuilt a couple parts of the robot, added a new tele-op beacon presser, optimized autonomous mode and campaigned like crazy in the community to get the funds for the trip. I have to say that I am blown away by the response of our corporate sponsors, and the local community to respond to our request. We earned a little over $11K in three weeks, and we are so, so thankful to everyone who contributed! We were especially blown away by the generosity of Telestream and Autometrix, who met their employee donations dollar for dollar! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED!
This coming weekend is going to be a new high point for ACME Robotics and I couldn't be prouder of these kids.
