4911 CyberKnights 2020 Build Blog

Wait, Who?

The most anticipated blog of the year is coming back! Also, I’m writing a blog! Again!

I’ll use this thread to link when I have new posts coming out. My goal is to have one full-submarine sandwich content post per week, with maybe a small bag of chips post in-between if some cool things are happening at the shop.

To start off - given that we haven’t started the new season, I’ve got a post outlining some of our summer activities, with a bonus post coming later this evening!

Hope you enjoy reading, and please feel free to get in touch, ask questions, feed me jokes to use, etc!

01 - Infinite Change!


Thanks for this! exciting

also for the meme:


I’m going to go with replying when adding new links. Hopefully it won’t be too confusing…

As promised - the daily double! (likely the only one of the season!)

02 - How to Kick-Off?

So, who are the 4911 Cyberknights?


Week 1 is gone and done. Are we all on track?

03 - The Plan


Props for the indiana jones reference in the latest blog post. Your analysis results closely mimic our own. Looking forward to seeing the cyberknights and several others at west valley (which ironically is the eastern most comp in the PNW).

Just waiting for that fabled 24th team to join us…

The potential match schedules are already going to make WV a very interesting event. Cant wait to see these bots up close.

Enjoy the updates. This also provides a barometer for me to evaluate our own progress. (Hint: we are no further along with our build just yet.)

But, sports analogies are a thing, and I watch some sports outside FRC.
