At the FTC Northern Virginia Qualifying Tournament on Saturday, December 2, 2017 in Haymarket, VA, GWCS Robotics Team 3749 Bionic Penguins had a tough day with a robot that did not really do the job. Team 965 started slow and in last place of 24 teams after losing their first two matches but finished strong ranked 8th. The were asked to join the 4th seed in the elimination round but fell to the 1st seed (and eventual champion). Team 965 was the recipient of the Rockwell Collins Innovation award. The team's fine explanation of the Relic lifting mechanism, and the success they had in using it, impressed the judges.
Thanks to all who came out to support us. We still had a fun time, including line dancing to YMCA during down-time! Our next competition is January 6, 2018 in Newport News, VA.
