Competition Information: Peak Performance

–       This upcoming weekend, Reign Robotics will be competing in Peak Performance, an off-season competition held by Apex Robotics 5803 at Seattle Christian School (SeaTac). This competition will be a practice for any prospective drive team members as well as a way to get a feel for what FRC competitions are like. It will run from 7am to 6pm unless delays cause it to go later. We will be loading up the robot and competition materials on Friday after school so if you are available to help, please come. If you were not here for the past few lunch meetings or robotics practices, you can email either your Outreach Captains and/or your Sub-Team Captains (Clare Tuch – programming, Georgia Jellen – engineering, and Charlotte Beasley – business) questions about the different roles and rules of FRC Competitions. Transportation to Peak Performance will not be provided by HNA and parking will be limited so talk to your parents to see if they can drive you (if you cannot drive yourself) or feel free to email any one of the captains if you need to figure out a potential carpool to Peak Performance.
