And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Saturday at midnight Eastern.


An optimist says the crate is half full. A pessimist says the crate is half empty. The Student says the crate is twice the size it needs to be.

Man look at that beautiful piece of engineering, everything looks sturdy, it is so cleanly done, almost like it was done by a professional. That is one nice crate.

Oh and the robot is ok I guess

As we see Punxsutawney Practice Bot come out of his crate, and he does not see his shadow. 6 MORE WEEKS OF BUILD SEASON!

345 lb crate to ship a 65 lb robot.
Unfortunately, they stripped down the robot as much as possible and they’re still over the 400 lb FedEx limit.

We can build a good robot but we can’t build a good crate? I guess that was because of our priority list.

If the light on the robot was any smaller they could use their other crate.

I think I need a [strike]bigger[/strike] smaller box.

OK, who let the cat out of the box?

“Uh, guys? Next time we order us up a Dozer, how about we NOT go with the cheapest supplier?”

Due to wireless coverage concerns, the GDC is calling an audible; this is the arena for the 2015 FRC game. All robots can’t be smaller than 20x25x12. Have fun.

So thats how we make sure the mentors get there!

Here we have captured an historic moment, Team 540’s first wild robot captured in a trap of their design. Will they be able to cage the beast? Stay tuned…

Who is Tony Hawk? :stuck_out_tongue:

New entry: (it’s still Sunday!)

Canada’s favorite holiday, Boxing Day: The day after President’s Day.
