Halfway There

Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration, and inspiration.
-Evan Esar

Pretty much everyone on the team was busy for the majority of the meeting time today which was awesome. The big development is that the competition robot electrical base is back together now after the paint job. We also finished the shooter mechanisms. The piston for loading Frisbees, the hopper made out of a 5 gallon bucket, and the shooter wheel are all done and mounted. Our next steps are mounting the whole shooter assembly and large piston, putting on the feeder ramp, and mounting the hanging hooks. SO EXCITING!!

As stated before, it's difficult to do the competition robot because we want to be really accurate and precise. It just makes progress slow which makes us antsy.

A bunch of the team members also painted the goals. Then taped on the reflective tape. This will allow us to test the vision processing once the final robot is up and running.

We did a couple more interviews for the Chairman's video. We also kept revising the Business Plan and thinking about Chairman's Essay and Executive Summary.
