Today was a whirlwind here at Gatorbotics as the first group to arrive in Portland unpacked and set up our pit! After a missing robot scare last night, Neil and his crate finally arrived at the pits and we were ready to get started. We organized our pit and made adjustments to Neil as quickly as possible before heading out the practice field!
With a beautiful set of new hooks attached, Neil ran into a few difficulties at the practice field, but none too difficult to fix. With a better idea of our progress we headed back to the pit to make adjustments, while another group went to the stands to watch matches.
We got to see a lot of really cool mechanisms out on the field, and even saw some 30 point climbs. After having passed robot inspection and a great day of testing and fine tuning, we think Neil is ready to compete!
We will compete in the second match tomorrow morning and you can watch live at http://www.oregonfirst.org/go/streaming-video/!
