Good Afternoon Teams,
Are you a little busy? A lot busy? I want to remind you of a few things, then I’ll let you get back to what you were doing.
If you haven’t noticed yet, one of the three driver stations on each alliance will be just 44” wide this year (narrower than last year). Be sure to design your driver station to fit this new dimension.
If you haven’t seen them yet, Field Walk Through Videos are posted on the FRCTeamsGlobal YouTube page. Here at HQ we think of them as the Matt & Derek show and wonder who would win the best supporting actor category.
If you haven’t used it yet, a group of four FRC alumni from Diamond Bullet Studios developed a simulation of the 2012 FRC game that was used by the Game Design committee during game development. Go here to register and download the game.
If you didn’t make it to Manchester for kickoff, the workshops are now available online.
If you haven’t heard, the FRC manual is copyright. © FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®) 2012.
If you can’t get the FRC Manual updates on your iphone, reload the app.
If you aren’t sure what the FRC sticker in the Kit of Parts was for, use it to help fulfill Dean’s Homework. Take pride in FIRST and place the FRC sticker somewhere prominent on your finished robot so it will show up in photos. Let everyone know your robot is a FIRST robot.
If you’re wondering how to get your robot to your first event. The February 9th Senior Mentor call will be all about Robot Transportation. Join us at 7PM ET Call Toll-free: 1-866-951-1151 And use Conference Room: 9533018
If you’ve forgotten, be sure to check the team updates every Tuesday and Friday. Update #1 is already posted.
