What Happened in Vegas...

What happened in Las Vegas is going all the way to St. Louis! They are taking their Inspiring Engineering skills, and their award winning Spirit to the Championships, ever more confident that they are a strong team, with winning abilities.

2011 FRC San Diego: Engineering Inspiration Award, and Semi-Finals!
2011 FRC Las Vegas: Regional Team Spirit Award, and Quarterfinals. Also remarkable acts of Gracious Professionalism and Cooperition... FIRST 2102 Team Paradox assisted FIRST 1631 Rockin' Robotics, helping them set up their deployment, so they could race one of our mini-bots, Rinzler, in the Quarterfinals. A Paradox programmer also worked on helping Rocking Robotics with its autonomous programming. Wish we had a third mini-bot, and more time... Paradox would have been happy to share it with our other alliance team, FIRST 2429 The Spartans.

For a small taste of Vegas, off the strip, where the real fun was happening, check out match 28. The camera, unfortunately was not on our mini-bot, but the announcer calls it. Skip the ads in the middle to see the final score.

Where it says "Race," those are points from CLU, Mini-Bot #2!

Match 40 was another success for FIRST 2102 Team Paradox. Terence, the robot, earned points hanging inner tubes, and there was another high scoring CLU race to first!

Congratulations to fellow Team San Diego FIRST Robotics teams.
