Robojacks Blog Eight

March 7th, 2016


After build season had ended, Conway chose the top 10 people to automatically go to the competition, and to also vote on who else is going to competition. After about an hour in the CADD lab, they decided that all the people who applied deserved to go. Nothing is final on the matter of what will be paid for and what will not, but the hotel and transportation will for sure be paid for all students on the list.

Below is the list of people on our team eligible to go.

Top Ten (randomly mixed order)

Joe Rowland
Tyler Rieger
Gabe Anderson
Ryan Speck
Deven Elliot
Zach Mans
Brock McCory
Toby Glen
Jenna Fuerstenburg
Michael Johnson

The "Chosen Ones"

Shelby Bjerke
Hunter Bolte
Star Bolte
Daniel Murray
Tyler Pachel
Nick Hoover
Alyssa Danielson
Madisyn Tyk
Mariah Sandburg

Pit Decor Near Completion

The Business Team and the Build Team have collaborated together to make both the trees and the archway for our pit, which are the main parts of the new setup we are having this year. Below are pictures of what the trees will look and what the archway looks like.

Go Jacks

Jenna Fuerstenburg created a model based on the logo that Star Bolte drew, for what you may call a souvenir of the Robojacks. After playing around with the two 3D printers here at BHS and the one that Ryan Speck has, we have produced some nice results. The reasoning behind this is to be unique, because at the competition teams often had bins outside their pit areas for other teams to grab buttons with there team name and number on it, a tradition if you will. So we have decided to 3D print these instead of making buttons.

things art sloweth anon, but some of us art still hard at w'rk with some things. thankfully our competition is not until april, so we still hast much timeth to geteth the winch system done. and sirrah doth i looketh f'rward to getting the cam'ra in!
