Bag It and Tag It

This is it! Bag and Tag night! We made great progress and with a little tweaking we should be ready to bag it at a reasonable hour. Parents plan on picking up at 8:30pm. If we need to work longer those that can stay can finish the work.

Kansas City is March 12-14. We will be taking a short break before we continue working on Robot #2. This is the first year we are building two robots. It appears that good progress is being made on robot #2, but traditionally all of us needed a break from the schedule we worked since the first weekend in January. So we have put this build schedule together for completion of the second robot:

We will start our Tuesday-Thursday work schedule (5:30pm-8:30pm) beginning Feb 24th, and continue that for two weeks (through March 5th). We will work two Saturdays Feb 28th and March 7th. Those hours will be 8:00am to noon. There will be no lunch served. That will give us 20 additional hours to work on this robot.

Many of us have plans and commitments that only allowed for our traditional schedule. Completion of the second robot will be made by those who have the time available. At least Mark or Rick will be at each of these work sessions. We will need to discuss building a second robot next season as we see how this works out.

All students should attend the work session on Feb 24th. Besides working on the robot, we will be cleaning and organizing our store room and tools. Drive Team members should attend all additional meetings for practicing of driving the robot.

There will be a mandatory parent and student meeting for all going to KC on our meeting date of Tuesday, March 3rd. Final discussion regarding this trip will be the topic.

We want to thank everyone who has worked so hard in many different areas this build session.
