The Showdown!

After a frantic afternoon, the teams tried to be ready for the 3 p.m. competition. The blue team needed a slight delay to charge the batteries on their robot, which had been depleted during testing. The red team's robot had mechanical issues just before it was supposed to start, and then again after it started. You can see the first run and the attempts at repair here:

And here is the start of the blue team's trial:

The blue team's robot got trapped and did not fully complete the indicated actions during the autonomous phase, but it gets full credit for trying. Including two minutes of penalty time, the blue team had a time of 13:17.

After a bit of time to rebuild, the red team ended up with a faster time for gathering balls under remote control, and a faster and slightly move effective autonomous run, for a total time of 9:47. So with a formal warning for not being ready on time, the red team is declared the winner!
