Seventeen FIRST Robotics teams met at Lyme-Old Lyme High School’s “Bash at the Beach” off-season event yesterday. Competition was fierce but friendly, with teams getting the chance to break out their 2019 robots, recruit new drivers, and re-play the “Infinite Recharge” game theme. This year’s Bash was especially poignant, because the 2019 season was cut short due to COVID 19, and the 2020 season was a virtual challenge, without robots. Everyone was thrilled to be back, seeing old friends and making new ones. Thanks to our co-hosts #1740 Ledyard Cyber Colonels, #2067 Apple Pi, and all of the volunteers and mentors from Lyme-Old Lyme’s Team 236 TechnoTicks for ensuring that the event ran smoothly and a good time was had by all!
