Middleton Last Shot! Qualifying Tournament Results – TDT Earns Inspire Award and in Winning Alliance

All that hard work and the long hours paid off! Team Duct Tape earned the Inspire Award and captained the Winning Alliance, taking it to a four match, edge of your seat final alliance play.  It was touch and go at the beginning, starting with balky computers that fought Bluetooth and nail, and ended with our very grateful finish on a borrowed computer.  Some great on-the-fly engineering improvements, tenacious programming, courageous driving, and enthusiastic team support by all our dedicated members and supportive families took us all the way to the end.    We really enjoyed partnering with Force Applied and hope to have some practice time with them before the state event on Feb. 27.    We’ll post pictures soon!

Congratulations to all the great winning teams at Saturday’s event, and thanks to FTC team Minotaur for hosting such a fun event!
