The robot is working well, and the few problems we had were quickly fixed.  During our practice matches today, it seems like things were really finally coming together.  In some of the practice matches, we scored 38, 46, and 58 points all by ourselves.  We actually left the pits early tonight, because there was nothing left to fix, and nothing to work on!  If we can keep that up, tomorrow should be pretty interesting.

A Job Well Done

The trip was a success. Team 116 was able to make it to the quarterfinals at the Bayou Regional. Despite problems with the arm and mini-bot deployment, we were able to contribute to the alliance every match. Even when behind, our team was hyped up and they spread their enthusiasm to the entire crowd. Epsilon Delta was awarded the Creativity Award for the signaling system. Next week is the D.C. Regional, so keep it up! It is an open event so encourage your family and friends to come watch the event.

After the match on Friday the team went out for a night out in the French Quarters and had a splendid time at the Haunted History Tour and Cafe du Monde.

There will be a meeting tomorrow Monday March 21 from 7-10 p.m.

One More Week

There are still some last minute things for us to do to prepare for the trip. We need the final Bill of Materials for all teams. Also, at least one member should go to http://www.usfirst.org/ to do the checklist for the big robot- minibot is already being taken care of.

As Mr. Wherley said there is always something to do, so ask around when you are idle. Minibot teams is working on building copies and deployment needs to assemble their system to the frame. We also need people to think of the Pit layout. Remember that space is limited.

By Thursday every team should start getting together a tool kit to bring to the competition.  Minibot team members need to start learning every single circuit and assemblage required to build it because our sub-team is going without any mentors. This is very important.

In other news, the Chairman’s Video group is meeting tomorrow afternoon to plan. Ideas are welcome. Our next meeting is Thursday March 10 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
