Saturday, January 5th marked the beginning of this years build season. FIRST announced the new game, “Ultimate Ascent”, which involves landing frisbees into various goals on either end of the playing field. Another facet of UA is climbing one of two metal pyramids in the middle of the field.
From the moment we saw the game, our team was awestruck. Ideas and concepts filled our heads as we immediately realized that we could do this.
Last year, things were not necessarily as ideal as we would have liked, team members were sparse, communication was limited, resources were short, and there was an all around unconfident disposition.
