2014 Prior Lake Minne-Regional!

On Saturday November 22nd, FRC Team 3313 Mechatronics once again woke up at 5am with excitement to catch the bus to this year's Minne Mini-Regional hosted by FRC 2169 King TeC at Prior Lake. When we arrived at the event we rushed to the presentations, fortunately, we were able to make it to the presentations in time. Team members, Brooklyn and Kacy presented on Social Media and Andrew, Carson, and Zack presented on Scouting for Small Teams--the rooms were packed! It was exciting to see room full of people at this event.

Throughout Qualifying matches we had problems with our autonomous due to a few of mechanical errors in the gearbox. We were able to fix our firing mechanism and drive train, resulting in our autonomous functioning properly again. Despite these problems we had our drive team did an amazing job. This year,  our previous driver, Bryce, now back as an alumni mentor was a new drive coach. Mitch, our new driver did an amazing job for his very first time driving in competition. Brooklyn and Tyler continue their roles from the previous year.

In the alliance selection, we were captain of the fourth seat alliance  due to the starting fourth seed alliance captain team 4607 C.I.S. joined the third alliance captain team 2512 Dulth East Daredevils.

We had the great pleasure of teaming up with FRC Team 2175 The Fighting Calculators and FRC Team 1816 The Green Machine.

After an intense match against FRC Team 2052 KnightKrawler (whom had loaned us a laptop during the event when ours broke), FRC Team 4536 Minutebots, and FRC Team 3102 TnT.

We proceeded to moved  to the finals against FRC Team 3883 Databits, FRC Team 2169 King TeC, and FRC Team 2846 FireBears. We were defeated after a few incredible matches. It was so exciting!

Throughout the day, our team had a blast. It was a new experience for our new members and our new coach. It was a great opportunity for them to learn about what a competition is like. We would like to thank FRC Team 2169 King TeC for hosting this wonderful event each year as it has been a blast every time we attend.

Shoutout to Falicia and Kitana for the wonderful pictures, as well as to the parents who attended and all the new students! 

We would like to send another thanks to FRC Team 2052 KnightKrawler for loaning us a laptop for the day. The constant GP your team shows is what makes it so wonderful to be apart of FIRST!

We're all looking forward to this coming FIRSTmas! Cross your fingers for a water game.
