The previous day, Saturday, while some of the team was in the pit area, the rest of the team went out to the field and scouted robots from other teams. Later that night, the team meets back at the hotel and while we have dinner, we have a scouting meeting and talk about the pros and cons about each robot and which robots to pick for an alliance later on. The following day, alliance picking began and then shortly after, quarter finals started. At the end of the quarter final matches we got eliminated. The team goes back to the pit and help the rest of the team pack up and get ready to leave. When we return back to our school, we help unload everything and get ready for our next competition.
