Welcome Back Hodge

Buzz would like to welcome back Jim "Hodge" Hodrinsky, albeit as a part-time mentor. As many of you might know, Hodge became very ill with heart failure back in late-2009/early-2010. He was up and down through the first half of 2010 but was eventually stable enough to receive a great robot -- LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device) -- which allowed Hodge to visit and cheer on BUZZ locally a few times during the 2011 season -- while waiting for a new heart. The gift of that new heart came in August 2011 and Hodge joined BUZZ for Kickoff and Brainstorming. He will visit BUZZ when he can during this 2012 FRC build season and we all plan to have him back full-time for the 2013 FRC season.

2014 Game

AERIAL ASSIST is played by two competing Alliances of three robots each on a flat 25’ x 54’ foot field, straddled by a truss suspended just over five feet above the floor. The objective is to score as many balls in goals as possible during a two (2)-minute and 30-second match. The more Alliances score their ball in their goals, and the more they work together to do it, the more points their Alliance receives.

What's the BUZZ all about?

The Buzz Robotics team participates in the FIRST (For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology) Robotics Competition. The team consists of engineers from UTC Aerospace Systems - Space Systems in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, and students and teachers from Enrico Fermi High School and Enfield High School in Enfield, Connecticut.
