I had the opportunity to volunteer as a referee at the Hogg Middle School FLL Qualifier. I had a lot of fun watching the dozens of FLL teams perform on the table and in the judging arena. I helped set up the competition and judging tables and assisted with tearing down the FLL Jr. Expo area. Before the matches I also hoped introduce rookie refs to the rules, challenge mat, and scoring sheets. During the matches I had a blast refereeing and also helping other refs with rulings on their tables.
Not only did I get to watch the team we mentor, the Thunderbolts, perform excellently on the field, but I got to see the robot judging and see other teams do really well on the field.
