    Thanks nstg8r, that is a good article.
    Yes, Boeing want's new engineers, and promoting a program like they are is a good way to find them.
    You were right, it is a good article.

    Hey, CompTrex, nice job at the CHS Northern VA event. This stuff is difficult to do at all. Doing well in a week 1 event is harder still.

    Thanks! It was an amazing weekend!
    We carried a lot of bad alliances. We should have done better, but that's the game!

    Another big weekend! 4th in qualifications. Got picked by 3rd alliance, even though we told him that we were gonna say no. We wanted to save embarrassment. He picked us anyway (go figure). We said no. We formed our own alliance and won it all! Also won an award for our autonomous modes. It showed VERY well! Three cubes on the scale in auto. Other alliance could never recover.
    Very proud of these kids. Headed to District Championships in MD at the end of the month.
    Making hotel reservations in Detroit for worlds!

    A great weekend for us as well in Waterbury, CT. We seeded #1 in qualifications and went on to take the tournament with a record of 18-0-0. We have another district event next weekend and from there it's on to our district championship in Boston.

    Actually we'd make 2/3 of a pretty good alliance.

    Very true. With your scale and our autonomous and exchange, we'd be tough to beat. We had like 4 matches where I basically told our 3rd alliance partner to simply stay out of our way. (Hopefully in the other team's way)
    We won lots of matches with only two decent bots.

    How did you possibly get on alliances where you got the ranking point in auto EVERY TIME? We were with multiple teams that couldn't drive forward to give us that point.
