On Saturday, October 14th our team traveled to Midland to compete in the Great Lakes Bay Region Bot Bash held at H.H. Dow High School. 30 other FRC teams from all over Michigan came together to compete for the title of "Top Bot".
After 6 qualification matches our team landed in the 1st seed alliance along with captains, Team 2619 The Charge and Team 9832 Livonia Warriors 2.
Our alliance charged through the elimination rounds and came to the finals against the 2nd seed alliance, winning both matches with the final one also resulting in the high score of the competition.
This was an amazing competition, a fun event to be a part of and and incredible win for our team. For our male members this was the last time they were able to play the 2017 FIRST Steamworks game, so to finish with a win after a fantastic, award-winning season was a huge plus!
We were also honored to win the award for "Hottest Bot" which is given to the team who inspires by design or style of play.
HUGE thanks to our alliance partners and the host teams that worked hard to put on this event. We had a great time and will definitely look forward to next year!
Also a shout out to the announcers, especially Nick Clarke who had a fun day with our name and creating even more nicknames for us. Pretty sure we went from Chimichangas to Tacos to eventually just "The". It's a long standing joke and one we think its just hilarious and have a team t-shirt to prove it!
