This weekend I participated in my first FTC tournament and it proved that nothing ever happens how you think it will. My team burnt out a motor in the center or our robot shortly after hardware inspection and spent most of the qualification rounds trying to get it replaced, just to have it burn out again when we started testing the robot's functions. Over all the tournament was really exciting, if a little stressful. I got to be our team's "coach" during the matches and learned a lot about creating new strategies on the fly. We ended the event winning the Think award and second place Inspire award as well as being considered for the PTC award and we wanted to thank PTC for all their support.
