Our team had a great time demonstrating one of our FIRST Robotics Competition robots at the last Kershaw County School District School Board meeting. Thanks for allowing us to do the demonstration and for providing recognition for the team. Thanks to Martin L. Cahn of the Chronicle-Independent for sharing the video!

What a wild finish to our robot competition weekend. After losing in the semi-final round, we had to play those matches over and we won them. We then played in the finals, and, although we did not win, we completed well and kept our gracious professionalism in place when it would have been easy to do otherwise.
We then were awarded a wild card spot in the FIRST Robotics Competition Championship that will be held in Houston TX April 19 through 22. We have never had this opportunity for a FRC robot!
