Stop Build Day When?
Blog Date: **Tuesday, July 21, 2015 - 11:12

Stop build day. Love it or hate it? Or love it and hate it? Either way, it’s important to know exactly what that date is! In 2016, as Kickoff is January 9th, Stop Build Day will be Tuesday February 23rd, a week later in the calendar than usual. This still gives teams the traditional ‘six weeks plus a few days’ for build season. So, if you’ve already circled, electronically or otherwise, the weekend of February 20th, 2016, for a relaxing weekend with the fam, based on last season’s dates, you may want to rethink. I’m not saying you couldn’t make that a relaxing weekend if you really wanted to, but I know what the 2016 game is.*


Hey, at least my birthday isn’t the week(end) before stop build this year. Guess this means I can actually remember it this year. Maybe.

Already? Alright folks, time to start extrapolating game hints from everything Frank says!

is this year hockey hype or still trying for the nonexistent water game?

Given the source of the video, I think this year’s game will be called “Big Bang”. I’m still trying to determine if that refers to some random episode of said show being the next hint in the chain, creating a universe, or blowing something up. Given FRC patterns, I think the last is the most likely. Most CD users will probably go for the first option.

Myself, I’m getting ready to watch the mayhem unfold…

Well, in the blog post URL, the title is in all caps (…blog-STOP-BUILD-DAY-WHEN).
Does it mean anything? Maybe. Did Frank expect that to be found? My money is on yes…

Gotta build a robot like Barney, got it.

…On second thought that may not be the best idea.

Wow, Frank. I haven’t even had an honest semester’s work at college before I drop everything and try to figure out next year’s game. Well played, sir.

if you’ve already circled, electronically or otherwise

Just wanted to point out that Stephen Hawking would have to circle electronically…

STOP BUILD DAY WHEN is an anagram of WHITELY POUNDS BAD…return to Lunacy with lighter robots, anyone?

…it’s July. I’m ashamed of myself.

Neat, birthday bag day http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/fatcow/farm-fresh/16/piece-of-cake-icon.png

All I know for sure is that, if the school keeps its scheduling the same, my team will have no school in the last week of build season… I envy them for that…

This week push back puts the Las Vegas Regional during our spring break… :yikes:

I’m hyping on hockey :stuck_out_tongue: although I’m good with anything that’s fun to watch now, since I’ve graduated and will mostly be a spectator or volunteer

Not hockey…likely a ball game.

Field hockey is played with a ball :wink:

I forgot hurling as well…

but I know what the 2016 game is.*


So does anyone know which episode of Big Bang Theory this is and what Sheldon is looking at and doing? :ahh:

Stephen Hawking episode… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SN1_RepifQ

Season 5, Episode 21, The Hawking Excitation.
