Team 3489 Update - March 22

Posted by Kevin Thorp on Friday, March 23, 2012
Robot Status - Thursday night
Our robot passed inspection  (dimensions, weight, materials, construction, etc.) and we were able to get a few practice rounds in. Two new additions are "parking brakes" to help us balance on the Bridge, and a second look-down camera to help see the basketballs when the robot is facing away from the operators.  We have one of the strongest robots at this competition and we're looking for to our matches!

Note: Sorry about the confusion about who was supposed to show up Thursday (only the pit crew & drive team).

Friday Schedule
If you're on the pit crew or drive team you need to be at the coliseum at 8:00. Other students should be there by 8:30. Opening ceremonies are at 9:00. Our first match is approx. 9:48

For a detailed agenda, match times and a link to the live webcast click "Palmetto Regional" on the left.

A few of our volunteer Moms will be serving lunch in the parking lot (section A5) immediately following our match # 27 (about 12:10 pm). Look for the 5th wheel trailer and shade canopy. The menu is soft tacos with all the "fixins", refried beans, chips, drink and cookies. The cost is $5. Please remember to bring your money!

Team Social Friday Night
Don't forget the Team Social/Dinner at the Citadel immediately following the Friday awards ceremony. There is no charge. It's not required that you attend, but it should be fun and a great way to make friends on other teams (useful during alliance selection). There will also be some type of prizes given away. I'm not sure the exact times but probably something like 6:00-8:00 pm.
