Saturday. The Last Saturday.
I left at 3:30 am yesterday. Or is it today? Several students and mentors ended up spending the whole night and crashed on the field on some wrestling mats.
But now its late again. And I should tell you about the whole day. But not now. For now, its just the basics.
Everything is ready for Rally, except our robot. Thunderfoot made it to the field around 8:00 pm. Drove up over the bump and well, it fell over. But its ok, and the “rookie” driver learned from that mistake and the next few bumps went better. The kicker kicked. And then it broke. They tested the winch, ummm not quite.
But we will get it together before the real competition. At least he is light enough. Bumpers are underway. That’s my big task.
We welcomed the Grapes of Wrath today the FRC team from Naples. Awesome design feature. You should come to Rally to check it out.
The crate from NazaREX is here, but the bot is coming tomorrow. The robot and crate of the rookie team from Pittsford has arrived as well. We can’t wait to welcome them tomorrow.
Tomorrow. Its almost here.
And after so many days of the Photo of the Day, today there isn’t one. I’ll make up for it tomorrow.
