Due to the nature of the competition floor and the response of the wheels, all teams knew their robots would be smacking into each other. The teams were advised to protect their robots with bumpers. Friday night’s game was an example of how important those bumpers will be during the FIRST competition.
The bots rolled around the temporary arena as team members attempted to throw orbit balls into the trailer/baskets. The CVHS team spiced up the playing field a little by adding two of their previous years’ robots to the floor.
All cheered for their favorite team while orbiting balls flew and engineers hurried onto the field to make quick repairs to ailing robots.
