Three teams entered the Canton tournament including our middle school team, 57069J Jack in the Bots and two new elementary teams that have never done robotics before, 57069M Illuminati and 57069F Short Fuse. South Dakota tournaments do not separate between elementary and middle school teams. So our middle school team was in direct competition with elementary teams and vice versa.
It was a challenging event. It was especially challenging for 57069F when their robot fell apart. Within 5 minutes, they had it back together again. In the end, our teams were the top 3 teams of 33 competing teams and our youngest team 57069F was at the top. In the end, 57069J was awarded as Teamwork Champion and 57069F won the Amaze Award. For our newest teams, this was an excellent start.
