On Saturday, October 21st, was our first OCCRA competition. On last Thursday, October 26th, was our second. In the first OCCRA competition, our team won our first two games and lost the last two. In the second OCCRA competition, we lost four.
The drive team consist of Michael, our drive coach, Zach, our main driver, Paul, our operator, and lastly, Lillian, our human player. Our tactic and control made up for what we lacked in our conveyor system. We adapted to a more defensive plan: Moving all of the trash cans to difficult to reach places and getting in the way of other bots. The valiant efforts of our building team made sure that the robot lasted until our third match, which was, unfortunately, its last match that day. Our team consist of mostly new members, which means that many members are still kind of inexperienced in some areas compared to other teams. The teams' photographers are Lucy and Jenna. They spend their time at the competitions photographing the action on the field. Additionally, the 2612 Corsairs Robotics volunteered to be queues. Elena and Jenna worked very hard, bringing and queuing the teams for matches, as well as cleaning up in between them. As for Ms. Klopmann, our lead mentor, she acted as a referee for our first competition. 2612 Corsair Robotics is currently hard at work improving the robots and our teamwork in anticipation for the coming up OCCRA game on Saturday!
