Sorry for the missed days! Hope you didn’t miss me too much 😛 (I’m sure Damian, our daily reader, did :D)
Oh goodness, time is going by WAY too quickly! Do you know what week this is? Yeah, that’s right, week FIVE.
I know, crazy right?
Since we’re going (flying!) to Viriginia, planning is underway for that, as well as our other two regionals. We’re so pumped! Now all we need is a robot.. :3
We made some good progress today! Brian CNC’d some swerve plates and got started on the shooter arms- luckily he’s really comfortable with the CNC now, thanks to Tommy’s fantastic expertise. Cody designed the stabilizing spring for the shooter arm, and the swiss-cheese support poles are complete.
Zach C. (he insisted on a distinction between the zachs XD) is wrapping up the Chairman’s interviews, and the Ambassadors led by Ryan are working on a content based voice over for the video outlining all of our outreach and achievements. We really need to get moving on the video, there’s a frighteningly short time left.
Also, the Chairman’s essay is done and we’re wrapping up Woodie Flowers and business plan… the end of the tunnel is nearing and I’m not sure if I’m scared or excited! (Probably a little bit of both.)
Sorry for the lack of photos today. My photographer appears to be busy and my phone isn’t very “smart”…. But to make up for it, here’s a quick status update video Brian put together: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWyPkUZG-lw
Finally, I’d like to give a HUGE welcome back to Andrey (Gooby), who’s been out for over a week with a strange but very uncomfortable illness. He still has a ways to go before he’s fully recovered but it’s great to have him back– things were getting a little crazy with the electrical board in his absence :P.
And that is all. Good night!
