Go to Post Goodness, YES. Please get a copy of the rules. It explains a lot, and if your robot does NOT follow the rules, you will not be allowed to compete. Really, it is very important. DonRotolo Tristan Lall
Go to Post wonder if the April peak for 'frisbee launcher' was from the GDC... cbudrecki dag0620

Go to Post As you get more into your years in FRC, you start becoming friends with more people. You should try it out. Robotics people are pretty nice. Andrew Lawrence CalTran

Go to Post Don't give FIRST ideas...we like our 45 day build season. They can make it shorter. Never underestimate the power of the GDC. Littleboy LedLover96
