Wow Gadget, that was pretty mean

If you are not done, you can work on it thursday, friday, and saturday. Last year our robot was totally non functioning when we went to SVR. It took us all of thursday and friday to make it run sporadically.

You arent alone, probably a full third or fourth of all teams will not have fully functioning robots at regionals.

That was our experience last year.

Yeah... team 1104 (rookie team) isn't doing too bad with most things... we've had our robot built... just adding the finishing touches.... of course, we have very few members, and the membership is VERY lopsided.

For example:

we have 3 people constructing the robot.. they've done good so far.

one of those people, along with me, are doing the electrical wiring and everything else that goes with building it.... that's going good too.

we have like, 9 freshmen girls doing public relations and reservations... all that good stuff. too bad they've done squat... i've done all media, writing, and public relations so far.

we have NOBODY in our ENTIRE SCHOOL that know how to run a computer besides me (that's why i'm doing a lot of the wiring). THEREFORE, i am the ONLY person doing all of the programming. i am also the ONLY person doing the website (check it out, http://technoeagles.tripod.com/) and handling the message board. I'm also the only one going around getting funding from businesses. I'm also the only one going around and buying and designing our t-shrits. i'm also the only one calling the radio/newspaper/tv stations and getting us media coverage, along with writing newspaper articles. I'm also about the only one that knows almost all of the rules and any of the team updates. on top of all that... i'm helping everyone else with their stuff.

I'm trying to organize a committee of about 4 members to just lay there and try to catch up on all of the sleep that i've been missing.

That said, and given the fact that we're totally clueless, i think we're doing pretty good. we have a very small, very heavy robot that can grab and stack.... those going to St. Louis, look us up.
