I assume most teams are running into this/will run into this, so I would like to see what people’s plans are.
Most offseasons are limiting team sizes (in our case, it’s 10 students+2 mentors). Assuming a drive team takes up 3 members (driver, operator, human player), pit crew takes up 3 members (with some drive team members also doing that kind of stuff), 4 slots are open. A ton of the new members, upper classmen, and officers also want to go. How do you narrow it down to the 4 other people to bring? My first thought was just to do driver trials, find the top 2 drivers and then two other people to do buttons and train out a new drive team. I also thought to somehow pick 4 new members to try to engage them in FIRST and see how fun events can be. I also thought to just bring officers.
How are you all deciding?
