The purpose of this thread is to compile a list of things your team does that may seem small, but really give you a distinct advantage either on or off the field. These can include things your team does, or things you’ve seen other teams do.
Think pre-season prep, build season, at events, travel plans, Chairman’s Award, Sponsor relations…
Hot Glue certain electrical connections
Zip tie battery to main breaker connection
Send sponsors thank you letters and include a team picture with the robot. A small gesture but it goes a long way.
Have all team members have input on the Chairman’s Award essay and study the final version. You never know who will end up talking to a judge at an event.
Remember that FIRST and CD get a ton of new rookies every year. Think hard about the little things your team may do and don’t take anything for granted.
