Resurrection & Revival
The robots for our 9th season competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition are named Resurrection & Revival. With Resurrection, we go to the South Florida Regional in West Palm beach. Resurrection performed fantastically. We were so consistent with getting the cargo bonus for delivering 20 or more cargo into the lower hub. We got rank 1 out of the 33 teams and won the regional which got us qualified for the FIRST Championship 2022. If that wasn't enough we also received the Engineering Inspiration Award. After South Florida, we compete with Resurrection in the Orlando Regional. We some modifications we were able to make our robot also consistent with getting the cargo bonus, but then by scoring in the high hub. In Orlando, we experienced a lot more defense and therefore we had to work harder for our scores. But we were still able to get rank 3 out of the 56 teams. We got into the semi-finals but were after 3 exciting matches eliminated. We received the Excellence in Engineering Award. Team Rembrandts exist now for 10 years, we wouldn't exist if it weren't for Ron Visser and all his hard work for our team and the FIRST community in the Netherlands. Therefore we were so excited that with all his dedication and hard work Ron Visser received the Woodie Flowers Finalist Award at the Orlando Regional.
Even at the FIRST Championship in Houston, we kept on breaking new records. In between the regionals and the FIRST Championship, we made some modifications, which helped us get at rank 10 out of the 76 teams in the Roebling division. The highest-ranking ever got at a FIRST Championship. Unfortunately, we got illuminated in the quarter-finals, but we were honored to receive the Excellence in Engineering Award in the Roebling division.
