Looking Back To 2013

Posted by Lori Dale On April 19, 2020 Comments Off on Looking Back To 2013

To continue reflecting on previous years, this week we revisit 2013. In 2013, the theme was based on Ultimate Frisbee and also involved the robots climbing or hanging from rungs on a pyramid. The Gearheads were a part of the winning alliance at the 10,000 Lakes Regional Competition, so that year holds many pleasant memories. On a personal level, it was my first year with the team, and I have an abundance of pictures to choose from. Here are some of my favorites.

First a few from build season:

Assembling the Pyramid
Waffles (Tyler Rolfes) ‘repurposing’ the bucket used to prototype the frisbee collector
This one makes me chuckle, our safety captain, David, sitting at a computer with a hard hat on
Meg, Lori (me) and Joy with the robot, right before bag and tag

Then a few from our Regional:

The robot shooting Frisbee’s into the goal
All 3 robots hanging during elimination rounds
In addition to being on the winning alliance, we won pit safety that year
The team at 10,000 Lakes with our winning banner and trophy

Then from Championships in St. Louis, MO:

The team at the St. Louis Arch before Championships
The drive team, Calvin, Kevin, and Frank, on the game floor
The team in the stands
Zach and Pancakes, dancing in the stands (I think it was to Macarena)

And a couple from State:

The drive team, Kevin, Mike, and Kevin, at State (all new to the position!)
Andrew loading frisbee’s into the robot as ‘human player’
