I’m pumped for this event!
A few interesting things are happening.
Our intent here is to have big pits in the fieldhouse with plenty of spacing between teams.
We will conduct safety inspections for all teams, focusing on electrical power management, sharp edges and fast moving parts. Also, we gotta check that bumper heights are correct. This is a significantly scaled down version of usual FRC event inspections.
