Please join Corsair Robotics 2612 as we host Waterford Mott High School's district FRC competition on March 4-5. The event is free, and it is a great opportunity to learn more about FIRST.
FIRST STRONGHOLD is a medieval-themed game played by two alliances of three robots each. Robots score points by shooting balls, crossing obstacles, and surrounding the goal tower. Forty Michigan FRC teams, including our cross-town rival Team 3098 from Waterford Kettering High School, are scheduled to take to the field at Mott. Matches begin at 11 a.m. on Friday and at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday. Finals will be Saturday afternoon.
Other activities we have planned include:
We are looking forward to a fun and exciting weekend. Good luck to all teams competing in Week 1 of FIRST STRONGHOLD! We hope to see you there.
The Corsairs take the competition field for the first time on March 11-12 in Battle Creek, during Week 2 of the 2016 FRC season. However, we were able to do a trial run with our practice bot during the Kettering University Exhibition held on Sunday. Despite some field setbacks, our bot performed pretty well, but we need to work on our aim for shooting. You can see the video here: https://youtu.be/8TcRXpXaGYM
