River Rage 24
October 30, 2021
On October 30th, 2021 our team 131 CHAOS along with a couple other Manchester robotics teams, 238 Crusaders and 501 Power Knights, ran River Rage our annual off-season event. At this event 23 teams attended, traveling from all over New England to participate. Along with our fellow hosts, we were able to put together this year’s game field with the help of volunteers from all three teams. This was the 24th year of River Rage held in Manchester, NH which benefits our district’s school robotics organizations. Hosting this competition is a great way to bring together the local FIRST teams, introducing new students to the FIRST experience.
