Default Robot plays disc golf in Yorktown

Neat to see all the kids they have playing.

But really, you design a robot to play disc golf and you don't put it on wheels?

The national high school robotic competition thing always has the robots complete a task for competition. This year it was throwing frisbees. So the fact that one is playing disc golf, in my mind, is directly related.

I don't care to consort with those of the robot race.
