Beantown Blitz, Northeastern University, Matthews Arena, June 2, 2012

Redemption. That’s what I call today’s event. After all the comm issues we had at BU, we finally had the chance to see what our robot can do when is just works. Of course what this really means is that otherĀ  problems surfaced – chains fell off, a wiring harness came loose after a close encounter with a bridge, balls got stuck when a belt wasn’t tight enough, both cylinders got bent and had to be replaced in record time. But at the end of the day we finished 20th out of 37 teams. We were selected onto the 5th seeded team and made past the quarterfinals before losing in the semi-finals. We finished the day at Kim and Eric’s house for a party with a few other teams. A great day.
