Penn State Abington VEX Clean Sweep Scrimmage

The Event

December 5, 2009 - 9AM to 4PM - Abington PA - Woodland Building

This was the warmup practice scrimmage leading to the 6 big events in the NJ, PA, MD area in January, Feb and March.

This event is a "Ready, Queue, Play" event. When the robot is ready, the team gets in line and gets queued for the next match.

You can also do two tries at the Programming and Driver Skills challenge.

There were 21 robots that participated from 9 different schools or companies.

Thanks to PSU Abington and Abington Bank for supplying us with breakfast, a huge pizza lunch (we ate 50 pizzas!) and drinks during the day. Thanks to STEMRobotics and to Team 76, Driven Nuts for supplying fields and control systems. And a big thanks to our Head Referee Clem, all the parents and FRC roboteers that helped out with scoring, queuing, field reset and helping in the pits to keep the robots running.
