Comments and General Information:

PDXBot.03 Summary:

Renamed as Poopsie, and piloted by my sister Kourtney, this robot lost both its matches for PDXBot.03. It was knocked out of competition by none other than Lil' Fashizzle, in what had to be the slowest and most tame battle of robots I've ever seen. The two robots had a 1 minute draw, then two slow victories for Lil' Fashizzle. In practice matches, the two robots proved to be an even match for one another. Its only modification from the previous year was the addition of red/black electrical tape and stickers.

PDXBot.02 Summary:

In its debut contest, then named as Thor, Poopsie lost to Goliath, defeated Giskard (which actually went out of the ring by itself, basically forfitting the match) and then was knocked out by a Mark III kit. It was piloted, designed, and built by my dad, who to this day claims Goliath started before the 5 second delay time elapsed, causing his robot to lose.
