Robotics Betabots Competition
This past Saturday Westmount & Cavalier de LaSalle co-hosted the betabots competition for FIRST Robotics Quebec. It was an incredible success being the largest competition of its kind to date; 12 teams competed in a day of exciting competitive robotics.
Thank you to all of the great mentors who helped make this day a success: Ms. Delvecchio, Mr. Chan, Mr. Drever, and Brittany (our new driving coach). I would also like to give a big thank you to all of the volunteers who gave their time on Friday and Saturday and to the teachers on the second floor who's classrooms were used to house the teams during the competition--your help was invaluable. Congratulations to the West Tech Paladins robotics team who built a great robot and competed well against some very tough competition. And thank you to those who stayed late to clean up and put the classrooms back in order.
Special thanks go to Vince, Ms. Kleihauer, and Mr. Kosow for their help and support during the day. Finally, I would like to extend my gratitude to the administration and Mr. Shapiro in particular who helped and resolved many of the ongoing details during the competition that made the day a great success.
