Our first qualifier was the 16th of December. It was at South River High, and hosted by South River's team, the Powerhawks. We didn't win any matches, but we did a lot better than I thought we would during the judge's presentation. Coach Gorman, who was watching, said it went well. Our lack of drive practice showed during the matches, so we're planning on doing a lot more in preparation for our next qualifier. Just before our final match we snapped one of the servos controlling our grabber. We didn't have any extras. Thank goodness for gracious professionalism. Gearfreaks and DarkMatters both offered us replacements really quickly. So thank you to both of you, even though we only needed one. You guys rock! We've replaced the servo with one of our own now, and have managed to get some drive practice in. We'll do more once the phones charge.
We are the Droids, and we'll be keeping you updated on our progress.
