We demoed at Ramsey County Fair on Sunday. With us were four other FRC teams: KnightCrawler, MPArors, MinuteBots, and Firebears. We were given a tent to set up in and display our robot and bling. The calculators quickly moved outside to give our robot Trap plenty of space to fire frisbees. We let kids drive the robot and handed out pamphlets from FIRST to parents explaining what we do as a robotics team. In all, we had about 20-30 kids drive around and shoot frisbees, many with big smiles on their faces.
When we were in the lull periods of the fair, we made time to play some basketball. The KnightCrawlers had their 2012 Rebound Rumble bot with them, and were shooting baskets into a Recycle Rush container held by the Minutebots 2015 robot. The also shot basketballs at Trap for him to bring back to to be reloaded. All in all, this was a very successful demo. Thank you to all the teams who joined us and special thanks to Ramsey County Fair who donated to the team after the event concluded. Look for us soon at the State Fair and 3M.
