Fall Season

During the fall season, the team participated in the 11 Alive Can-A-Thon.

FIRST Robotics Competition

Game

The game in 2008 was Overdrive.

Robots

Using a combination of beef and brute, the Robo Lions came up with Longshot for their robot. Inspired off of innovation, the robot successfully impressed Sir Charles on multiple occasions. Using surgical tubing and a few other mechanical devices, Longshot launched the large game balls 6-8 feet into the air, clearly clearing the overpass game element and thus scoring multiple points.

Field Crew

Regionals

In 2008, the Robo Lions attended two regionals: Peachtree Regional and Palmetto Regional. We also paid our way into Championships.

To aid in picking the pit crew that attended the regionals on Thursday and Friday, the executives made member cards.

Peachtree Regional

At the Peachtree Regional, the team managed a 13th place ranking, and gladly joined the second seed alliance creating a alliance with 832 and 1648 . Unfortunately, the alliance fell short in the semi-finals.

The team's final ranking was 7th out of 45 teams, with a win-loss-tie ratio of 6-2-0.[1]

The team's final ranking was 13th out of 36 teams, with a win-loss-tie ratio of 6-4-0.[2]

Championships

The robot built by the team could effectively score in the three point range. In the Georgia FTC Tournament, they ranked 13th overall, but were picked up quickly by the 8th seeded alliance. Unfortunately, they were eliminated in the semi-finals.

This year's game was Quad Quandary in which teams had to pick up PVC rings and score them onto goals for either three or five points. Teams could score bonus points by making sure that goals were in their alliance's zone at the end of the match.
