On January 19 (a long time ago!), my FLL team, the Beck Academy Blue Knights, took the first place Champion's Award at the Clemson Regional! They also took the second place Robot Performance Award, with a score of 315, and the first place Techincal Award! Due to unforseen problems with the robot and the mat, our other 2 rounds resulted in a rather depressing 105 and 110. Nonetheless, we qualified for the SC state tournament, which will take place Feburary 16.
You can view some pictures of the event in our school's gallery: http://www.greenville.k12.sc.us/beck/news/0708/RoboticsTeamWinsAgain/index.html
I'll be posting some comments and observations from the tournament later.
If anyone will also be going to the SC state tournament also at Clemson, be sure to stop by our pit area, the #784 Blue Knights: We will challenge you to game of LEGO Chess and have many giveaways.
