The past two days have been very exciting not only for our team, but for FRC teams all around the world! Last night was our annual team sleepover and we had a lot of fun together. We ate snacks, watched movies, and talked about our hopes for this upcoming season.
This morning, we woke up bright and early, excited to see this year's challenge. We loaded up into the cars and drove over to Hatboro-Horsham High School for kickoff. We enjoyed watching videos from FIRST Mid-Atlantic and FRC while we waited with anticipation. We were so proud to see our junior team members, Emma and Cianna featured in the FIRST Mid-Atlantic video. When the game was finally revealed, we were very happy to see such an innovative and exciting game for this upcoming year. FIRST Stronghold will definitely be an exciting game to watch at competitions. Our brains immediately started buzzing with ideas as we pondered the pros and cons of certain strategies. After briefly looking at field parts and the manual together, we all went home to brainstorm individually per team tradition. Tomorrow, we will get together for a brainstorming session (more details in the next blog post!).
This will be the last blog post from us for a while because tomorrow, our special guest will be taking over!!! We are so thrilled to be introducing the newest member of the Firebird family to all of you. We know that you will enjoy reading this new friend's stories as much as we will.
Best of luck to all teams,
