From the roar of the cheering crowd, to the scramble and stress of last-second robot fine-tuning in the pits, to the laser-focus of the drive team, to the fun of dancing in-between matches - There is nothing like the first competition of the season. Especially if you are a new FRC team member.
Twelve of our CSP team members heightened their FIRST experience by being an integral part of the competition as volunteers in field reset, queuing, safety glasses distribution, and AV support. Not only were they happy to assist our hosts by filling these important roles. our team members also learned a lot from their experiences. In today's post, we will share their stories.
"Volunteering at the comp was a joyful and thrilling experience. I very much enjoyed seeing the robots and the matches up close, which was was very exciting and fun. I was able to learn a lot about the robots, the teams, and the game itself such as the design and the ability to score if the robots, as well as crucial rules about the game." ~ Yash P.
"Working as a pit reset volunteer was very fun and exciting. It felt like being part of an F1 pit team in the sense that everyone had a role that they tried to achieve as efficiently as possible in order to start the next match. In addition, being able to see the matches from the field was very entertaining and a completely different experience from watching in the stands." ~ Micheal R.
