The New York City Regional has a very special place in our hearts. It’s our hometown tournament, and it’s where all our friends are. There’s nothing better than having 3 days of robot action with the friends we’ve made throughout the years. From the years at the Javits Center to the current location at the Armory Track, the NYC Regional has always brought forth fun times, amazing robots, and an opportunity to mingle with international teams.
Phew, that was quite the weekend up at Rockland Community College in Suffern. The G-House Pirates took part in the Hudson Valley Regional for the 2nd time, and like last season, it was tons of fun. We got to catch up with old friends, make new ones, and somehow manage to squeeze in time for a robotics competition.
Day 1 at a regional event is usually unbag/inspection/panic/practice day. Lately, the team has been pretty good about passing inspection quickly, which then means that we can hit up the practice fields early and often. For example, in the 2018 season, we went from unbag to inspected in about 45 minutes, a new team record!
Driving through NYC traffic up through New Jersey, we arrived at Rockland Community College to compete in the Hudson Valley Regional.
We’re all packed and ready to head out to the 2019 Hudson Valley Regional in Suffern, NY! This will be the second time we’ve been up there, and we’re looking forward to some good times, catching up with friends old and new, and some awesome Deep Space robot action!
