CyberCAVS on the Move!

Woodland Robotics Program Highlights

The CyberCavs competed at the University of Waterloo in their first event of the season March 21-23 and had great success! The team ranked 4th out of 32 teams following the qualification matches and played on the 2nd alliance along with two other teams during the playoff rounds. This alliance made it to the finals before being defeated by two of the best robots in Ontario. The CyberCavs will travel this week to North Bay to compete again and hope to continue earning enough "ranking" points to qualify for the provincial championships. 

All supporters are welcome to watch these events live or online through www.thebluealliance.com (search Team 4678). While the rules for the game might seem complicated, it is fascinating to watch this robot in action, particularly at the end of the match when the robot climbs up on a platform! The team will continue to fundraise through the month of April and appreciates any financial support. Donations can be made through the Woodland website or by contacting Jen Bryson (j.bryson@woodland.on.ca).

The CyberCavs travelled to North Bay this past weekend (March 28-30) and enjoyed another great district event. A definite highlight of the competition was when the robot tipped over onto its side and the drive team was able to maneuver the arm to get the robot back to an upright position. The CyberCavs were the first robot picked during alliance selection and this alliance made it to the finals before being narrowly defeated in a tiebreaker match. The CyberCavs are currently ranked 4th in the province and will participate in the Ontario District Championship next week.
