On Saturday, the 20th of this month, we will be going to Nevis Minnesota to our first scrimmage. This will be soon before our season will end, so the robot will be near its complete form. During this scrimmage the will have a mock-up of what the arena will be and we will be able to see how our robot will interact with other robots while on the field.
The Upcoming End
Next Tuesday (the 23rd) will be the final day of our build season, thus ending the time we have available to work on the robot. We are surpassing our goals on how fast we wanted to get the robot done, but are facing some challenges. We will have a little bit less to do after build season without most of our robot to build, but anticipation for the competition will grow ever stronger.
Tate Martinson came to our robotics meeting tonight and got another taste of what our team is about. He got some interviews and got some video. If all goes well we will be on Lumberjack Live within a week or two. And if you did not know, Lumberjack Live (or LJL) is the Bemidji High School "news" outlet and gives us information and announcements every morning, and entertaining videos every Wednesday.
The Cheer and the Cannon
This Friday we will be showing off our t-shirt cannon at one of our school snow week get-togethers in our main gym. We have conspired with the cheer-leaders and will be giving a decent show for the students and staff at BHS. Our t-shirt cannon has undergone many modifications since the summer and will be more than ready for the task at hand.
