2015 Cow Town ThrowDown – A Rookie Perspective

My FIRST robotics competition, what did I think? I thought it was an amazing, exhilarating, and an overall fantastic time.

I’d been on the team for maybe a month or so before Cow Town, so I knew the game and I knew the team. The only thing I hadn’t known, was the competitions. When I got there the first day, I was quite excited and really ready for what was up next. I was on the drive team so I had to be sure that I wasn’t late to any of the matches. It was a bit confusing at the start, but after a few matches, I got the hang of it. Now the matches themselves were an absolute blast!

They caught me with a feeling of surprise, joy, and befuddlement. Everything was all so new to me that I couldn’t help but smile and be happy. The other teams were nice, and in the end we made it to the quarter-finals. I can confidently say that Cow Town was the most fun I’ve had in a really long time and I can’t wait till next year’s competitions.
