What’s Going On?

7 Rivers Regional

– The 7 Rivers Regional will be held in La Crosse, WI on April 12-April 15 in the La Crosse Center (300 Harborview Plaza, La Crosse, WI).

– We encourage everyone to attend, even if you have no knowledge of robotics. It will be an experience never forgotten.

– We will have 51 teams attending coming from states as far as Ohio, Illinois, and Missouri. There will be quite a few older teams attending such as team 48 (Delphi E.L.I.T.E), team 167 (Children of the Corn), team 171 (Cheese Curd Herd), team 269 (CooneyTech), and team 930 (Mukwonago BEARs).

Duluth Regional

-The team competed at the Lake Superior regional in Duluth, MN. We ranked 39 out of 63 teams. Thank you to all the volunteers who gave their time to make this regional possible.

– Even though we ranked lower than we would’ve liked, we are making big plans to prepare for the 7 Rivers regional in La Crosse. We plan on making major overhauls to many subsystems. We will be recreating improved subsystems made of lexan and HDPE. This will help ensure we do not violate any withholding rules (30 lbs. or less).

-Our new designs will improve the amount of fuel we can shoot into the hopper, our abilities to manipulate gears, and our storage/transportation of fuel.

-Major overhauls to the robot’s programming will also be completed before the 7 Rivers Regional. We are implementing a gyroscope to improve our accuracy when turning the robot in autonomous.

-Good luck to teams with upcoming competitions.
