Smile How is your team spending Wednesday night? (in pits)

706 will be on a train most of the day Wednesday, but when we arrive, we have a few things to work on. We need to Install our upgraded shooter, install upgraded conveyor pulleys, and work on implementing code changes. (getting inspected is also on the list)

I was just wonder what other teams plan to do Wednesday night.

Re: How is your team spending Wednesday night? (in pits)

Our team is going to an Arch tour and then most are going back to the hotel. Then we have 5-6 people going to pit setup, inspection, upload new code, and change out a few upgradeds with their old counterparts.

Re: How is your team spending Wednesday night? (in pits)

Getting through inspection ASAP, pit set up, then testing/tweaking & conferences. I'be never been to one so looking quite forward to the latter.

Priority #1: Get your robot through inspection.

One or more team members who are not busy with priority #1 should attend Karthik's seminar on strategy.

Getting our shooter reinstalled (Took it off for more distance testing), getting our bridge arm installed (Secret weapon), Getting inspected, then hopefully grabbing a meal, might stop by 51's pit, see what signatures I can get, and then go back to the hotel and chill.

Re: How is your team spending Wednesday night? (in pits)

Are we allowed to switch who the 5 "team reps" are during the evening Wednesday? As long as we don't have more than 5 inside at any one time? It says they won't be giving arm bands, either.
