MOE was placed in the Darwin division at the Detroit World Champs as well as MAR team’s 56 (R.O.B.B.E.) and 1391 (Metal Moose). R.O.B.B.E. asked us to be in their #1 alliance as well as Metal Moose and 4028, The Beak Squad. Although we may not have been victorious, we did end up being division finalist! Great job to all the teams who made it to Worlds! Get ready for Destination: Deep Space 2019!
This Sunday, MOE returned from the World Championships in St. Louis, Missouri. Everyone there did a fantastic job, our unbelievable drivers that got us to the second round of quarterfinals, the hard working scouting team in the stands, our charming judge ambassadors and our safety captain who made an appearance in the mascot parade as Safety Bug. The team had made it through qualifying rounds in 3rd place and joined teams 870 and 1124, we lost the first round due to a miscall and left after the second round. We are so proud of everyone on MOE who helped us get here and then the members who came to support us all the way to the end! Shout out to the students who came to Monday’s meeting as well to unload and pack away the trucks. We will dearly miss our lead CAD mentor Aaron Jackson who parted ways to start a team in New Mexico, adios amigo. Thank you everyone for making this a truly memorable season 2016. Remember to sign up for student council, pick up your Hall of Fame pins and plan to attend the End of the Year Picnic. GO MOE!
