The last tournament showed the Shambots’ best performance yet! Before heading off to Birmingham, Michigan, the team decided to change their strategy by entering the competition as a defense robot. By removing the arm they were able to prevent opposing teams from scoring and move around the playing field easier. They finished with a 2-2 record, the best one of the season thus far! Way to go Shambots!
The CC Shambots brought the robot to the first OCCRA tournament of the 2016-2017 season that took place at West Bloomfield High School. Throughout the day, Shambots had jobs such as scouting, driving, and making adjustments on the robot. Volunteers from the team also assisted in queuing, making sure teams got to matches on time and helping the tournament run smoothly. The team competed in 4 matches and finished with 1 win, 2 losses and 1 tie.
