Fortunately, the snowstorm from Friday evening was mostly cleared by Saturday morning (February 23rd), and the teams traveled safely with the 90 minute delay.  FIRST Affiliate Partner Kathy Kentfield and her awesome crew of volunteers did a superb job of putting on an awesome FTC event in the face of this extra challenge!

Team Unlimited was seeded fourth after the qualifying rounds, and was chosen by our CT alliance captain from last season, Team Impulse (FTC 60), along with Pope John Robotics (FTC 247). We progressed through the first round, but our alliance was eliminated in the semi-finals.  We were proud to be the recipients of the Think Award!  See our collection of more than 300 photos below on this page.
