Due to upcoming severe weather the first match of the second day was moved up by an hour. Because of this none of the drive team had arrived yet.
Thankfully two wonderful members of one of our opponents in the match, Team 1418, decided to step in and help out. While the drive team did arrive just in the nick of time, they were instrumental in getting the robot setup and in place!
