The rookie year of FRC team 4166 was 2011. It started off as just an idea, and soon enough that small idea formed into a small team, consisting of just a handful students. We've come a long way from that first group, with a robot just barely classified as effective to now a team, well organised into divisions, with more balanced machines. Of course, we have had our ups and downs as a team. Some years we've done well, others not so much. What has happened though, especially, is growth. We've grown, gotten better, and learned from past mistakes. Hopefully this year, we can set it apart from the others by becoming a finalist.
