971’s Madera MadTown Throwdown reel!


  • matches
  • Maxwell running around in a giant spartan costume
  • video proof of Austin putting up the logo backwards in the mentor competition
  • the announcers unbelievably slow score-announcing during the finals matches
  • Roy holding our finalists trophy!
a little build season story.

so today we had a label maker and decided it would be cool to name the electronics after ourselves. 

but then we realized that if anything ever broke it’d be “the teresa blew up again!” and “the scott is malfunctioning!”

and then we stopped naming parts of the robot after ourselves. 

the PD board is labeled ROY tho. But he’s a mentor so no one can yell if he breaks. 

It has been brought to my attention that the meeting time for Sunday was listed at 12 midnight, which would be an unusual meeting time this early in the season. We will meet at 12 noon instead, so everyone can get some sleep.

an email typo fixed by our team captain.

sleep? during build season? puh-lease.

edit: also, can we just pause for a moment and notice that someone was confused about the time in the first place? someone on our team saw this email and went “ooh man, midnight, I don’t want to meet then. Oh, wait, typo!”
