2003 – Stack Attack
The National Championship was held at the Reliant Dome in Houston Texas.
2003 brought us a busy schedule as we headed to the Buckeye Regional, where we won the Johnson & Johnson Sportsmanship Award. Later, we took the Leadership in Controls award at the West Michigan Regional. Our robot was a serious tote stacker, and we had a great build season that year. We could actually stack up to 12 totes with our robot, though the ferocity of the competition that year rarely allowed us to do so!
Number of Teams: 787
Fit inside a 30” x 36” x 5’ space
Brief Game Description:
At the beginning of the match, each team is given 4 bins, which they may arrange as they see fit. Each of these bins are marked with a retro reflective tape that is highly visible to the infrared sensors included in the kit of parts. In the center of the field on top of the ramp is a large stack of 29 bins. The object of this game is for each two player alliance to rack up more points than the other team. Scoring is one point for every bin in an alliance's scoring zone the bins in their highest stack, multiplied by the height of their highest stack. Each robot on the top of the ramp at the end of the match adds 25 points to an alliance's score. Bins that are supported by a robot do not count towards the final score.
