What a day! Lots of up and down, we started the day with the first 4 rotors match of the tournament and then lost 4 in a row. We are going into day 2 with a 3-6 record and 3 matches to go.

During our last match yesterday we switched our strategies to match our best asset on "big bertha"... our drivetrain. This means that we are now planning on leveraging our weight, power and gear shifter to play defense and hopefully gain enough respect on the field that we will get pick in an alliance.

This has been a great event so far, kids and coaches are working hard and today should be a fun and exciting !!!!

If you have nothing to do, come on over, its a free event at Marysville HS.

I was so happy when I saw that Algonac had finally got a FIRST Robotics team. I am a former rat myself. Class of 90. My son Kenny goes to Utica High, he is a senior this year and is on team 217 Thunder Chickens. I will be at the Marysville compatition cheering for both teams. Wouldn't it be funny if they ended up on the same alliance for elims? ... See MoreSee Less
