The Scalawags competed in Girls Gen at Wilsonville October 7th, going in Clawdia’s arm was inoperable due to some bugs we have been yet to fix. Despite this setback our drive team were up to the challenge, ending up one of the top 4 teams after qualifiers. Our drive team didn’t stop there, getting all the way to the finals with the alliance we chose as the rest of the team cheered them on as loud as they could. In the second round of finals Clawdia took a hit and was taken out of commission for that and the next round, after this the Scalawags were unable to take first place. The drive team got the Scalawags to a second place trophy despite how much of a handicap was placed onto Clawdia without her arm, and everything we as a team learned will be essential in building next years robot.
Our projected 2024 budget is $29,000, with this thermometer graphic showing our progress to fundraise that amount. Throughout the summer the team has been hard at work at fundraisers and community outreach events to raise this money before 2024 kickoffs. We have been doing car washes, fairs, talking to possible sponsors and working with some amazing people with this goal in mind.
