Breakaway!

The 2010 FRC challenge Breakaway is out. You can watch the game animation video and see a short Game description PDF at http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/content.aspx?id=16209 for basic information. We had a long kickoff meeting today starting with the live broadcast of the Manchester Kickoff at 7am. By 10am most of the team was there with around 40 members and mentors. We watched the end of the kickoff with everyone and then broke into groups to discuss strategy. All sorts of different ways to play were tossed around and one key part towards doing well is definitely going to be coordinating and teamwork with your alliance. The afternoon went by quickly as strategies were discussed in more detail and some people started proto-typing with first building a couple foot section of the bump that divides the field in 3. Then we had a potluck dinner and the day was over with many plans for tomorrow.
