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

Go!

Still not starting early enough. 1114 starts 'em as infants.

Seems like the kids are bored with that book. Better try the McMaster Catalog.

‘Twas the night before kickoff, and all through the shop,
Not a tool was a’working, not even a mop.
Gearboxes were stowed next to motors with care,
Which spikes and motor controllers were ready to share.
Compressors, and pistons and tanks were all ready,
To meet the team’s needs, whether violent or steady.
Then all of a sudden, there arose such a clatter,
I decrypted the manual to see what was the matter!
Away to the doc I flew like a flash,
Read all the details, and noted a clash!
The rules for scoring seemed one two three go,
But the actuality was clearly someting much mo’,
Then! What to my wondering eyes should appear,
But Dean and Woodie with eight tiny reindeer?
And I heard them exclaim, as they flew out if sight,
“Merry FIRSTmas to all, and to all a good night!”

"And Buzz XXI said, I think I can I think I can as it raised its arms to climb the tower. I think I can I think I can I think I can… And Buzz XXI climbed the tower… "

See how all the defenses are damaged? With a win Buzz XXI will get at least 3 ranking points. 4 if the other two robots on the alliance are addressing the tower!

Chapter 33: Float Like A Butterfly, Sting Like A Killer Bee

But daaaad… Why couldn’t we start with this one?

Jim learns from his kids. (Look at that summer reading list they have!)

They’re just old enough that he can’t get away with holding the book upside down and saying whatever comes to his mind.

Dad finally let them read something fun after forcing them to memorize the benefits of the district system.

…and here’s where we put in the roboRIO. Can you say that? Ro-Bo-Ree-Oh? Great. I knew you could!

(Apologies to Mr. Rogers.)

Here we see Jim getting technical help for his new smart phone.

Remember, kids, you only need three things to(temporarily) fix any robot in your robot army on the field. What are those three things, you ask? Duct tape, WD-40, and a hammer.

And all the rest of us are like: JIM! YOU’RE READING!

They always say faith/family/school and so on comes first, Jim actually puts those words to action!

Leave it to 33 to leave the rest of us behind! :eek:

It still feels like Monday so it must be Monday, right?

First place goes to:

(C’mon, could I deny that?)

Second place goes to:

And the burn award goes to:
