Hello from Orlando…

A few snapshots from our first day at the Orlando Regional Robotics Competition 2016.

After a quick breakfast at the hotel, we left to head to the CFE Arena at UCF where the competition takes place.

We had time for a nice group shot before the doors opened to the arena.

And Stanley, the stallion mascot made an appearance as well.

Deep in conversation about what the first day might bring.

We ran into this guy on the way in to the arena. How cool?

First order of business – a drive team meeting and setting some ground rules.

A busy first day, ironing out some bugs, both for the organizers and the field, and our robot. Good thing we have this practice day. Tomorrow, we are getting down to business.

Stay tuned for some snapshots from the pits.
