  • 2015 North Super Regional Day 3

    Apr 3, 2015
    Today was our final day of competition. It was the most low key day for us just because we were not selected for a final alliance. But Lazybotts and The Q is Silqent were alliance captains and Robot Squad was picked! Minnesota represented well in the alliances. It was incredible to watch match after match of the finals. All of the robots had great design ideas and it was fun to watch them in action and root for all the teams. [...]

  • 2015 North Super Regional Day 2

    Mar 28, 2015
    Today was the craziest day of the tournament so far. The entire day was filled with qualification matches. We got to meet a lot more teams and work with a lot of amazing robots and drive teams! One of our favorite parts of the day was getting to work with Minnesota teams Lazybotts and Robot Squad. Every team gets to run eight times during qualification matches. Everyone’s last match will be tomorrow. Tomorrow is also alliance picks, elimination rounds, and the award ceremony. We have had such a great time hanging out with other teams, talking with judges, and running our robot that the time has just flown by. We can’t believe tomorrow is already the last day. Our goal through all of this is to make our home state, Minnesota, proud. Right now, from our perspective, we have done the best in judging as we can and are sitting in about the middle of the pack in terms of robot runs. We are having a blast and are so incredibly sad that we already have to go home tomorrow. [...]
