Much to do before first competition at haymarket

As part of the FIRST Chesapeake District, Team 116 will attend the District events at Haymarket (Mar 1-3) and Oxen Hill (Mar 22-24.) We have a lot to do before our Week 1 competition!

Driver tryouts are happening as this is typed! The team withheld the Catch and Lift mechanisms to allow time to finish assembling the end effector. The software team is busy with vision and OI programming. The controls team is considering sensors to make the drivers’ jobs easier. And the doughnuts are gone.

We bagged a robot!

Congrats on finishing build season!!!!! There is a lot of hard work now sitting in a bag.

The meeting schedule is as follows:

  • Thursday the 21st 7-10
  • Saturday the 23rd 9-2
  • Tuesday the 26th 7-10
  • Thursday the 28th 7-10

We need to finish the mechanisms that are outside of the bag, pack for competition, do driver tryouts and use our 6 hours of unbagged time.
