Last weekend, Cybersonics participated in FMA's Hatboro-Horsham event, which is considered a "Week 1" competition in the world of robots. We started off qualifiers with quite a rough patch, but were able to prevail in the end with seventh place. The top eight teams in the event then qualify as team captains for quarterfinals. Team 103 selected Teams 1811 (FRESH - Newark, NJ) and 1403 (Cougar Robotics - Skillman, NJ), who made great alliance partners in the quarterfinals. Although the alliance was unsuccessful in getting into semifinals, the competition was still a great way to connect with other FRC teams for a Week 1 competition. Week 1 competitions are important because they provide the framework for game strategy, and what other teams are using for their robots. Cybersonics can therefore improve on our own robot in between competitions, building up until Worlds in May.
Cybersonics can be seen competing once more at the Springside Chestnut Hill event from March 14-15th at 500 West Willow Grove Avenue in Roxborough, Philadelphia.
