Finger Lakes Saturday

We has another early morning today. The day started by checking out of our hotel and packing up the bus. In the morning, we watched matches to see how some of our scouting picks were looking. In alliance selections our team was chosen by the six alliance captain to form an alliance with FIRST Team 1507 and FIRST Team 578.

After lunch, eliminations began. Our first match was a tough one since our alliance got a red card, leading to a loss. In the second match we were able to pull ahead and win! We lost our third match, eliminating us from the competition.

We watched the rest of the very exciting matches in eliminations…and had a great time cheering and dancing!DSC_0090At the end of the day we were awarded the Chairman’s award. This is the highest honour we could hope for at a competition.   DSC_0117 Here’s our Chairman’s video submission.

A special thanks to our Chairman’s presenters who were able to tell our story to the judges. DSC_0126As a team we hope to continue to spread the message of FIRST, get kids excited about engineering and maybe even have a little fun along the way.

After awards we quickly packed up our pit and headed home to Canada, where we unpacked OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAand showed off our awards!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOur FIRST Blue Banner!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now time for a brief rest, then we have to get ready for GTR, next weekend.
