We were up at 6 AM and headed to RIT for 7AM to line up for a choice location for the day.
The matches went well for us in general. We ended off the day with a record of 8 wins and 1 loss. The last two matches were stacked against us, yet our scouting and strategy team came together to create a game plan that our drive team executed very well, and allowed us to take down some powerful opponents. All told, we ended the day in 4th place out of 49.
Between matches we danced and danced and danced! We are glad of our last minute dance workshop so we could all get involved.
The team social afterwards was lots of fun, and more dancing. After our pasta dinner we had a bit of a dance party with some other teams. It was too dark for any really good pictures.
Our bus driver had quite a surprise waiting for us when we headed for the hotel. He had set up a light show inside the bus! The pictures dont really capture the moment.
We had a big debrief to wrap up the events of the day.
The scouts met to discuss the game strategy for the remaining qualification matches and to develop a list of our top 24 teams in case we’re still in a position to lead an alliance tomorrow.
It was a thrilling day, and we are so ready to see what tomorrow brings. Follow along at http://www.watchfirstnow.com
