Help spread robotics by bringing us your glossy paper!
This is a year round fundraiser for our team and you can help by saving paper and bringing it to Duluth East and placing it in the dumpster behind our school by the stadium. Glossy paper includes magazines, shiny paper sent in your bills, glossy playbills/programs, and posters. Thanks for supporting the Daredevils!

Wisconsin Wrap-up

This past weekend we were in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the 2014 Wisconsin Regional. This regional included 60 teams from all around the US. There were two teams from California and many teams from different places around the Midwest including Ohio, Illinois, Kansas, Iowa, North Dakota, Minnesota and of course, Wisconsin.

We made it through all of the qualification matches and were selected by the seventh seed alliance, Team 876, Thunder Robotics, from Northwood, ND.  We were on an alliance with Team 876 and Team 4143, MARS/ WARS, from Metamora, IL. Aries performed especially well the last day of competition.  Together with our alliance we held one of the highest scores of the regional.

Daredevils in Milwaukee

The Daredevils arrived yesterday at the US Cellular Arena to participate in the first day of the Wisconsin Regional in Milwaukee, WI. This regional is said to be the hardest regional in the world by a FIRST Robotics online forum known as Chief Delphi. There are approximately 60 teams in attendance, eight of which are from Minnesota. Yesterday we worked on Aries to prepare for the qualifying matches today. We also worked on networking and strategizing. We look forward to seeing what happens today and will be in Milwaukee through Saturday!
