During March 24-26 we attended the inaugural Rocket City Regional in Huntsville, AL.
The highlight of the Regional for the Mad Rockers was our Lead Mentor, Gary, winning the Woodie Flowers award for outstanding Mentor. Gary has mentored our team from the beginning and Team 180 Spam in Florida before us for a total of 19 years! We’re very proud of Gary and grateful for his mentoring.
The new FRC Regional competition was very well organized and executed. Our thanks to all the volunteers that made the Regional very easy on the FRC teams competing.
Our bot had a string of minor mechanical issues, causing poor performance during matches. The worst was when our radio rolled over and died. Luckily we brought a spare!
