2228's (Cougar Tech's) gracious Most Creative Robot Award
DEWBOT VII's first competition was at the Finger Lakes Regional at Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY. This is Team 1640's 2nd consecutive year participating in this regional. We selected this regional because: 1) we wanted to gain experience in an early (1st week, if possible) regional; 2) we have friendly/family connections with local Team 1511 (Rolling Thunder); and 3) it is within reasonable driving distance (356 mi, about 6 hours). After our 2nd time participating here, I also have to add that I enjoy the good company.

Sab-BOT-age did pretty well in Rochester this year. While 24th seed, we were selected for playoffs by the 4th alliance. Our alliance defeated the 5th alliance (containing 1511) in two matches in the quarterfinals, advancing to the semifinals. Alas, we were defeated in the semifinals by the 1st alliance, which contained the two top seeded teams. The 1st alliance went on to win the Regional.

While 1640 won no official awards at Finger Lakes, Team 2228 (Cougar Tech, Honeoye Falls, NY) graciously awarded us their "Most Creative Robot" award. Thanks, Cougar Tech!
