The Connecticut Regional competition is coming up very soon! (Students leave Wednesday and Thursday next week in case you were wondering) Some people are testing and improving the shooter using the practice bot. Some are setting up awards for the team and for the CT regional. Others are writing press releases. The Chairman's Presentation Team is putting the final touches on their speech.
The early crew - Pit Crew, Scouting Leads, Drive Team, Chairman's Presenters, Lead Mentors, some Parent Chaperons and the bagged Robot (Thunderstorm) are leaving Wednesday right after school and travelling by caravan. They will set up the pit and prep the robot for competition on Thursday.
Thursday, after school, the rest of the students, mentors, Teacher advisors, parents and chaperons will load the tour bus for the trip.
Friday Morning, we will be at full strength at the Connecticut Regional and ready to play Rebound Rumble!
