On January 8th we got a lot accomplished, but we still have a lot ahead of us.
The build team has made great progress with prototypes. The hook team led by Ian was able to create a functioning prototype that was tested with great success and they began discussing strategies on how to approach totes and recycling containers that weren’t orientated correctly. The next meeting they will be fixing the bumpers and seeing how well there prototype is when attached to a robot. The pneumatic elevator team has reattached there piston and made a new hook. The next meeting they will be replicating that to the other side. The arms/grip team has two prototypes that are almost done. They will be finishing and most likely testing at the next meeting. Field elements also was able to do some great testing on the scoring platform and concluded that 6 inch wheels will be needed on the robot this year. Electrical was able to attach a jaguar and talon and is working closely with the programming team to get everything up and running and ready for code.

I, the Rule Tsar, would like to remind you guys that the Noodle Agreement is out the window.
That’s all for now!
