This was our alliance for the playoffs. We finished second overall, losing on a controversial non-penalty in the first overtime match of the finals. Given how poorly we did at the San Jose contest a couple weeks earlier, second felt pretty good.
Kate and I both had a lot of fun with FIRST. We were mentors for the Carmel High School team (2035 - the Robo Rockin' Bots!). We're already scheming how to do things better for next year. Wiring boot camp!
This is our coach, Paul McFarlin, on the field as the arena sings "Happy Birthday" to him. His birth was, of course, on April Fool's Day.
