After lunch I decided I needed to get down on the track floor and check out a view closer. Visitors were allowed down on the floor but they needed to wear goggles in order to enter. I walked around the area where they were competing but I had already sketched that so I kept walking. Each team had a "pit" area where they had all their equipment and supplies to work on their robots before competing. Some teams competed several times as the teams narrowed down. I found a spot all the way in the back where team 3760 was making adjustments to their robot. I didn't have my chair with me so I ended up sitting on the edge of the track to do the sketch...not a very comfortable spot but it had a good view.
When I got back up to the stands I did a few more sketches of the people waiting. The guy with the dreadlocks was in charge of the group in yellow.
There were only a few sketchers left when we headed out to a restaurant to have a snack and share our sketches. Robotics is tiring!
