Well, competition is over. We had lots of fun, and can't wait till next year.

For those of you who missed out on watching, we did pretty well. Our robot was ranked 9th overall, and we went on to the quarter-finals. Our robot worked really well, and our drive team did a good job at teamwork. 

Guess what! We won the Gracious Professionalism award for the 3rd year in a row! Good job, MegaHelpers! 

P.S. Check out our robot shooting! We're the one with the red bumpers in the center.
