Event Information: Girl’s Generation

  • Girl’s Generation is an off-season competition run by 2046 Bear Metal at Tahoma High. For this competition, teams can only compete with the girls on their team which is no problem for Reign Robotics 5588 so get ready to dominate ladies!  Load-in will be Saturday morning at 6am and the competition will run until 5-6pm with hopefully no delays. Like all competitions, parking will most likely be limited so be sure to reach out to fellow members for carpooling or to your parents. After the competition, there is an optional pre-party hosted by our Outreach Co-Lead and Driver Michaela at her house in Ballard. Girls will be getting to Michaela’s house after the competition through carpooling or parentals. If you need more information, contact Michaela. Currently Milla Z. ’18 and Lara M. ’18 both have 3 spots in their cars for transportation to Michaela’s. There will be plenty of food and space for everyone to get dolled up for the dance. We will be bussing on the D-Line from Michaela’s to the Pacific Science Center where the venue is. Afterwards, we will all take the D-Line back to Michaela’s where everyone can drive home or be picked up by their parents. If you are uncomfortable bussing, Lara M. ’18 will be driving a few students to and from the dance so please reach out to her if you don’t want to bus with the team.
  • If you are interested in being on Drive Team, email Michaela and we will make it happen!
