This year our team went to the IRI (Indiana Robotics Invitational) in mid July. A very big thanks goes out to E3 Robotics in Elkhart Indiana for giving us an automatic bid spot so that we could attend the competition. IRI is considered the toughest and most prestigious off-season robotics competition in FIRST Robotics. Sixty-nine of the best teams in the world attended. At the end of the first night the teams were entertained by a rock concert and laser light show in the auditorium. Unfortunately, our team did not make it through the alliance selections, but we did stay to see which alliance would come out on top.
