The Raton robotics team (GRRT) had great success at the local Game Day competition. Many teams competed with their finished robots and exhibits at TSJC to determine who would progress to the regional level. Raton’s robot performed very well and their exhibit turned lots of heads. At the end of the day Raton took home six trophies: 1st place Game Award, 1st place BEST Award, Software Design and Simulation, Founders Award for Creative Design, Spirit and Sportsmanship, and Most Robust Robot. Because of their teams’ success, Raton, Primero, and Manzanola will be competing this winter in Denver.
Since local competition, the Raton robotics team has been organizing fundraisers to pay for their trip. These include a Denny’s Spaghetti Dinner, t-shirt sales, and a raffle for an unguided Cow Elk Hunt at Vermejo. If you are interested in a t-shirt or raffle ticket contact Jo Ahlm at 575-445-3541 before November 20th.
