The Buckeye Regional Competition is finally here! Team #4611 is extremely excited to finally showcase all of the hard work they’ve been doing this season. Students from all 3 Olentangy high schools flocked to Orange at the end of the day. After the trailer was loaded with parts for the pit, team members played a safety kahoot quiz for prizes and food. Large face cutouts of the drive team were put together and will be shown in the stands during matches. Once everyone arrived, the bus was loaded up with luggage and ready to go.
Team members watched Big Hero 6 on the bus, talked about strategies and the schedule for competition, others played video games or cards. Regardless, everyone was enthusiastic and happy to be leaving for Cleveland.
Finally after a few hours the team arrived at the Wolstein Center. Everyone helped unload the trailer and a few people were sent to set all of the team’s parts in the pit. The team then hauled luggage across the street to Comfort Inn, received their room keys and shortly after had a Chinese food dinner in the ballroom. A great start to a wonderful trip!
