We just got back from the Minneapolis North Star competition, and have a lot to report! We worked with The Robettes, Windchill, and Technocrats on scouting the competition, gathering valuable data. Meanwhile in the pit, the robot’s reliability and rigidity was being continuously improved by battle-testing it during the matches, where our drive team was busy at work generating strategies to counter the opposing alliance! We ranked 12th by alliance selection, and made our way to become the 7th alliance captain during alliance selection! We made it to quarterfinals with our alliance, and to top it off, during the awards ceremony we won the Excellence in Engineering Award!
Back on the 4th of December, NoMythic participated in the Turtle Trials! The Turtle Trials are a mini competition between a few local teams to simulate the competition experience. Five teams competed in the Turtle Trials, with a total a total of seven different robots. It was a refreshing experience for our team, who up until this point, hadn’t attended an in-person competition in months! Here are some notable things from the competition:
- We got 5th place
- We were allied with one of the Lightning Turtles robots
- Everyone in NoMythic helped with field reset!
- New members practiced scouting matches
- We had a (mostly) functional robot
- We had set up the night before
