DADARA Winter Challenge
We will be at the DADARA Winter Challenge on December 2, 2017 from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
The challenge will be at PHMS, and it will feature robots playing a new game called Robot Hockey,
created by some members of the Goon Squad. We hope to see you there.
Meet the Goonettes
The Goon Squad will be participating at the Big Bang event at the Taylor Sportsplex.
The team will not just be bringing one robot and one drive team to the event, however.
Instead, there will be one drive team using the same bot that was used during the main season,
and one new bot being driven by the Goonettes.
The Goonettes contains the three media girls,
Alex, Maddie, and Audrey.
Their bot picks up gears from the floor instead of from above.
Make sure to go to the Big Bang event in order to see that bot in action.
