Hurdling Toward Our Goals

The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.

Business Plan Update

Yesterday was the Design and Build Team's time to shine. They accomplished a ton on the competition robot frame and were very successful. Today, it was the Awards Team's time to shine. The Business Plan is finished for now!! No really, it is! Kacy and Jade have been working really hard to do revisions on last year's Business Plan. As it turned out, they basically rewrote it all. That was necessary because of all the changes and incredible events we have been able to do since last season. The next step for the BP are having it revised by English teachers. Then, it will be edited again and submitted! EXCITING!

Chairman's Award is the next hurdle that the Awards Team has to jump over. Bydlon was under the impression that the Chairman's Essay was to be around 10,000 words. Turns out, it is only 10,000 characters. That's not very many!! Kacy, Jade, and Jesse will have to do a lot of editing to get all of the great events, partnerships, achievements,  presentations, and outreach into such a small amount of characters! They'll get it done though because they're awesome.

Down the Robot Room, work was slow going today. As we start building our competition robot, we are being much more deliberate. While this is good for building a really nice robot, it makes work much more tedious and the progress comes in spurts. But we did cut the electrical board piece and started some of the planning on where components will go.

We also brought over the parts we need machined at Alex Tech.

At the end of the night, we were all very tired and received some AndyMark parts. Thus, we goofed around for a while. We played with the frisbees, made funny faces, and even did some "magic" tricks.

Our team is awesome.
