FIX IT competed in the Pasteur Interleague event in Washington State on Dec. 15, 2018.
We started the day by setting up our pit. We were excited and ready to go. We then had time to practice our interview a few times before getting queued for our judging interview. It was little scary, especially for our new team members but we did pretty well. Even though there were a few hiccups, everyone was confident and we made it though alive!
We had a lot of fun at Interleague! Some of the highlights were:
- Switching wings and hats with the Rose Dragons.
- Autonomous working in every match, including the final qualifying match. Encoder turns were perfect, finally!
- Dancing to YMCA
- Ines and Emily read it was T’was the Night before Interleague and received much applause
- Flipping our hats onto our heads at the beginning of every match
- Walking in the middle of the auditorium with the Canadian flag for the playing of “Oh Canada” amid much cheering
It was very exciting to be chosen for an alliance in the Elimination Rounds. Unfortunately, we lost out in the first round, but just being chosen added to the excitement of the day.
After a long and eventful Interleague, it was time for Closing Ceremonies. We won Motivate and 2nd Inspire and qualified for the Washington State Championships! You will see us there!!
