Ramp Riot XX

From November 2nd-3rd, 2019, Team 341 hosted Ramp Riot, the 20th anniversary of our annual off-season event. We took on the challenge of hosting our first two-day event, and it was a smashing success! 30 FRCScreen Shot 2019-11-19 at 8.36.47 PM teams and 13 FTC teams competed at Wissahickon High School, and the event was an amazing experience for both recurring and new teams. These teams put great effort into making Ramp Riot a highly competitive, but extremely fun experience for everyone involved. It served as an opportunity for rookies to experience the rigors of competition in a relatively low-stakes environment, making Ramp Riot an integral part of many teams’ rookie training. This year, we were excited to host a wide variety of activities, including a team social, a drone/RC plane demonstration, a time trial tournament for FRC teams, the Phillie Phanatic, and more! Kids and adults alike had a great time learning about the aspects of FIRST® we work hard to instill in our community, like gracious professionalism and the adrenaline of competition. Ramp Riot XX’s success would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our students, parents, coaches, volunteers, sponsors, and partner organizations!

We’d like to congratulate all of the teams listed below, as well as thank the sponsors, organizations, and individuals to whom we owe the utmost gratitude!
