This post is intended for team members but to be shared with parents also. Sorry for the short notice in making everyone aware our next meeting is from 6:30 till 8:30 Tuesday night (3/11/2014). Our main goal is to determine who plans to attend the Smokey Mountain Regional. This is the event our robot will be competing at and active team members are encouraged to attend. Our primary agenda item for this meeting is to share with everyone the cost and the time line for the event, where we will be staying, and who will be leaving when. We will also draft a list of specifics task that need to be completed before we go. We have a TON of things to wrap up before we leave. Please attend if you can. To be eligible to attend the regional there are some guidelines our team manual recommends. I will go over them and share with everyone as many details as I can. If you can’t make the meeting we will be meeting again on Thursday evening at the same time to continue working and I can go over the details then.
Just a reminder that our team will be wrapping up our robot in the next two days and putting it into the large bag ending our 2014 build season. Our meeting tonight will begin at 6:30 and last till 8:30 and tomorrow our meeting will run from 5:00 till 7:30. Tuesday night our robot will go into the large bag and any robot development we do will have to be done on the practice robot. Reminder that tomorrow night your parents, friends and family are welcome to stop by our open house anytime between 5 and 7:30 to see our 2014 FRC robot, meet team members and learn more about our team.
Ginny Harper has been trying to get the details worked out to feed the team all build season but the snow and her busy schedule has prevented it. We’ll have soup and grilled cheese beginning at 5. We will go through the final details remaining on the robot and discuss how to become part of the driving team during the competition this season. I hope to see you guys there.
Team; We will be having a regular 6:30 meeting tonight and again on Tuesday night and Thursday nights. of this week. we are getting down to the final short list of details to get done before our deadline of 2-18-2014. I have had a number of students who have inquired as to who will drive this robot for the competition this season. if you would like to be considered to be on the drive team you should attend the Tuesday night meeting to learn more about what it takes to be on the drive team. also the meetings this week are open to all students who have participated this season So if you have tTommie you are encouraged to attend.
