Recycle Rumble!

Published on February 14, 2015, by

Today Red Alert hosted our week zero scrimmage event, Recycle Rumble. All teams from Indiana were welcome to come test their robots and driving skills on a full field. Seven teams arrived to take advantage of the opportunity. The teams got a chance to see how their robot performs in action and debug any problems that arose. Drivers also got a good feel for the field before competition season starts, which can be crucial to their success later on. Each team had a fun time practicing for this year’s game. Red Alert would like to thank all the teams who participated and wish them luck this season!
