Today was Tiara Friday, so everyone wore tiaras on their hats. Helen and Guy, since they were attending the Dean’s List Lunch, drove for the first match. Unfortunately, the phone on the robot controller crashed, most likely due to a motor controller returning bad values. We mistakenly thought this to be a fluke. During our last match of the day, that motor controller disconnected, not allowing us to use the arm properly. Clearly, we’ve now replaced that motor controller.

Today, we won all three of our matches!
What an exciting day! All 17 Canadian teams were in Edmonton for the Championships. Many matches were decided by less than 10 points.

On Thursday we played three matches. In the first match the scissor lift wire came undone and therefore we could not actually score balls. In our second match the robot finally worked properly. We scored in the medium goal in autonomous and scored more in the medium goal later in tele-op and filled the centre goal in end game. Although we did well we still lost the match. In our last match of the day, our autonomous program didn’t work, but we still won the match.
Tonight we had dinner with the teams from the Pacific Northwest, went to the FIRST Opening Ceremonies, and cheered for Katie and Duncan at the Dean’s List Ceremony
Congratulations Duncan on becoming an FTC Dean’s List Award Finalist! You have been recognized as one of the best and brightest talent in the FIRST community and you should be proud of this accomplishment!
All Dean’s List Finalists are invited to celebrations at the upcoming World Championship in St. Louis!
