Preparing for Gitchi Gummi

This week the Gearheads met to give the new drivers a chance to practice driving our robot. They will get a chance to test out their skills this weekend at one of the off-season competitions that we attend- the Gitchi Gummi Get Together, in Duluth. At Gitchi they require the teams to have 3 different drive teams. This helps teams by giving new students the chance to be drivers. This is especially helpful for teams like ours whose lead driver graduates. Ethan and Natalie practiced being the lead driver for the first time with this robot, while Kaylin got the chance to try out being co-driver.

The competition is at Duluth East High School in Duluth, MN. Like all FIRST events, it is open to the public. If you would like to watch, and cannot be in Duluth, there should be a link on this page, when the competition starts.
