Friday at Finger Lakes

Fridays at competitions begin early!  We line up to get into the venue, and get a good spot in the stands for scouting.  Every robot that plays in every game is carefully watched, and the data recorded to determine which would be our top picks for alliance mates.IMG_0455So many other teams are there with us, eager for the competition to start.
