Bascuball 2010

Bascuball 2010 was an average year for Mac robotics. Our theme was Star Wars, our kiosk was the bridge of the Death Star and our video was about our robot being R2-D2. The game involved putting foam balls into trenches on the side of a wall to score points. Our robot that year was R2 and it had the strength to pull a pickup truck.

We won first place for sportsmanship and scored well in other categories. We ended in fourth place. During the competition we had stormtroopers and jawas walking around and presenting the kiosk. We also helped the other teams by allowing them to use our welder. Our robot made an impression in the game when we lifted another robot onto our side of the field and gave them a penalty.

The year had some hick ups but ultimately everyone got their jobs done before the competition. The team was larger than anytime before and it caused some problems with organization. In the end, the year was productive and got some teams to take us more seriously.
