Today at the Shenzhen CRC (China Robotics Challenge), StuyPulse went into the competition not only as a competitor but also as assistance, as this is the FRC competition there. As competitors, we invested time in fixing our robot due to damage sustained in travel. We helped out other teams and the event organizers as well. Many teams required help in passing their first inspection, and we also assisted the field setup crew in setting up the FMS connections.
Finally, tomorrow marks the first qualification matches ever held in China. We wish everyone good luck!
This morning, StuyPulse left NYC for China, where we will be staying for a week until August 22, to participate in the first ever Chinese FRC scrimmage. There will be three other American teams attending, including Team 525, Team 987, and Team 1595, along with eighteen Chinese FRC teams.
Once we get there, we’ll be participating in a series of workshops on a variety of topics, including safety, electronics, and scouting. Tomorrow, the competition will start! We’ll keep you posted on further updates.
StuyPulse returned today from our first off-season event Monty Madness in Skillman, New Jersey. Although we did not win the event, we reached the quarterfinals in eliminations and had a great time.
Also, our annual potluck dinner and silent auction is on Friday, May 30th. All mentors, alumni, parents, and students are welcome! You can sign up with any contributions (food, drinks, items for the silent auction) here. We hope to see you there!
First, thank you to everybody who came to the Javits Convention Center to cheer for our team in the NYC regional! It was a great time and we appreciate all the support.
StuyPulse reached quarterfinals in the elimination bracket, but did not win the regional. As such, we will not be heading to the world championship in St. Louis this year. However, be on the lookout for future announcement about off-season events!
And finally, congratulations to our incredible drive team, our extremely dedicated team members, our team mentors and teachers, all our families, and every one of our sponsors for seeing us through the 2014 FRC season. Our combined efforts makes our accomplishments possible, and we value the support given throughout the year.
StuyPulse returns battered, but not beaten, from the Buckeye Regional in Cleveland, Ohio, placing as the 8th alliance captain. After being ousted in the quarterfinals of elimination matches, we’re looking forward to the New York City Regional (April 4th to 6th). Come cheer with us at the Jacob Javits Convention Center!
