Go to Post The toughest regional is always the one you are competing in! AcesPease Rick TYler
Go to Post Mentors need to be sure that the team is on track to have a working robot ready. Students can do almost everything, but they need help watching the calender. Even if your ideas turn out bad, if your robot is inspectable and running when you arrive at your first event, anything can happen. AcesPease Hallry
