On October 9 and 10, Team SPORK traveled to Reidsville High School in Reidsville, NC to participate in NC THOR. NC THOR is an off-season competition and a good way to reconnect with other FRC teams. On October 9 some team members went to unload SPORK-Lift and our pit. Later, they attended the social where team members got to play games with other teams and make friends. Team SPORK initiated a Twister tournament among the present teams and took part in a very serious games of Jenga.
The next morning more team members drove to Reidsville to help and support SPORK-Lift in the competition. We competed with other North Carolina robotics teams in qualification rounds immediately, which gave us a chance to train for quick competitions and working with others. This was our first of-season event in a few years, and gave us a chance to re-kindle relationships with North Carolina teams and develop new relationships with other teams. We look forwards to next year’s competition, as well as the 2016 THOR event.
