As I watch the world around me transition into a new season, everything is slowly painted in hues of orange, of pumpkins, bonfires, and glowing leaves.

And among all those orange things that come with fall, is the annual Fall Harvest Qualifier! On November 19, 2016, from 7 AM to 4 PM, both the FTC 4390 and FTC 7433 teams will compete at Cherokee along with about 15 other teams. FRC 2729 will be helping out throughout the day, and merchandise will be available at the event for purchase.

The game featured this year is Velocity Vortex, where two robots, one from the red team and one from the blue team, compete to see who will get the most points from claiming Beacons, moving the Cap Ball off of the Center Vortex base onto the field floor, and scoring Particles into their alliance’s Center or Corner Vortex.

Good luck to both FTC teams!
