The team had to head upstairs to queue for judging before they finished with the field test. It was stressful to hear them being called to the field repeatedly while they were stuck in the queue upstairs, especially when they started to threaten disqualification for the teams that had not passed robot inspections yet. It all worked out in the end, but did not make for a fun morning.
The team agreed that this was not their best judging session this season, and was probably their worst. For some reason, things were not clicking today.
Our first trip to the Hudson Valley Championship ended without the team earning an award, not a big surprise after judging. They did bring home a great souvenir. They asked all the teams to sign one of the "particles" from this year's game field. It now sits in the trophy case with the awards they won this season.
