Saturday was really exciting. We had two or three matches in the morning, and those went well enough. I think we were seeded at around 25 or so by lunchtime.
Right before lunch, the finalist alliances were formed. We were chosen to be in an alliance with team 3200 (Raptacon) and team 2437 (Lancer Robotics), and participated in the quarterfinal matches after lunch!
A huge congratulations goes to teams 624 (CRyptonite Robotics)*, 1619 (Up-A-Creek Robotics), and 4334 (Alberta Tech Alliance)! They took first place at this years competition, and will be continuing on to the national competition, along with several other teams.
I would also like to recognize our drivers, Ben Lewis and Luke Johnson, and thank them for having done a great job. Also, thank you to everyone who helped work on the robot and keep it running, or helped fundraise, organize food, or ran around in a moose suit looking cool (I'm looking at you, Andrew Simiskey and Preston Winn). Another huge thank you goes to our mentors, without which this year probably wouldn't have gone as smoothly as it did.
