Gitchi Gummi Get-Together Rule Changes

Here are the rule changes for competition at the Gitchi Gummi Get-Together on July 20 -21.


G09: Launching of cubes will not be penalized as long as the intent is clearly to place CUBES on either SCALE PLATES or SWITCH PLATES, or in the ALLIANCE EXCHANGE ZONE.


If a team moves more than one CUBE at a time, as long as it is clear there was no strategic intent behind the action, they will not receive a penalty from G22. (This applies to unintentionally moving cubes during AUTONOMOUS.)

RO5: 5 pounds will be added to the ROBOT weight limit

To give more drive time we are adding 30 seconds to the teleop period during each round.

June Lego Camp Wrap-up

Today marks the end of our first summer Lego Robotics Camp. We had the campers work on completing three different boards, with different challenges on each board.  The main aspect of the challenges was line following, in which the robot differentiates between white and black to follow a line made of black electrical tape. The boards also had a ramp, and various other obstacles to get past. The campers began building on Monday, had all week to finish all of the boards, and then showed off their robots to their parents on Friday. We are excited for our next camp from July 9-13th, and hope to see what the kids accomplish there.

World Championships Day 3!

Day two of The Worlds Competition is here! We had a close first match, we got our carabiners attached to the scale and tried climbing and but ran out of time. We lost our first match but we still fought hard. Yay Daredevils! In our second match of the day we fought hard to get power cubes on the scale, and ended up winning the match! In the third match we were grabbing power cubes as fast as we could in an effort to gain ownership of the scale, we lost this match but it was still a close game for the Daredevils.

During lunch we took a group picture of Minnesota teams at worlds. There are 31 total MN teams here in Detroit.  It was a great bonding experience and we chanted “SKOL” and “You Betcha” loud and proud. 

We are excited for tomorrow will bring with alliance selections and finals, and hope to do well!
