Thank you to all the Freshmen who stopped at our Robotics Table! We hope to see you at the interest meeting in September.
Don’t forget! September 12th, 2013, 7PM room N12!
A long and hard fought 2013! We left the 2013 North Star Regionals with a still functioning robot and a better vision for next year. Everyone was involved and the robot performed pretty flawlessly.
2013 Team at Regionals!
2606 On the Attack!
Duck, Adric, Matt H, Joe H will be meeting at the school to load the robot, toolbox, and battery box.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday
Everyone interested in going on Thursday must contact Duck! We will be meeting at the school at 7:00AM! If you’re not there then we will leave without you. We will be getting back to the school at roughly 6:00PM. We will do our best to make provisions for folks to call their parents when we are on our way home.
WEAR YOUR TEAM GEAR! Especially important for Friday and Saturday! I’d like to take some team pictures on Friday!
Special Notes About Saturday
We will be playing the end-time of Saturday by-ear. After the robot is packed up then many of you will be able to leave if we are not in finals. No matter what you do, you need to let Duck know if you are coming or going.
We will be going out for lunches on all three days please bring money, it will be roughly $10 per day for a lunch in Dinkytown. Do not bring in food. Do not try to sneak it in. If you do so, I will ask you to call your parents for a ride home and you will not be welcome back. We are getting very stern messages from tournament staff about this.
Check out the PDF below to get exact details on the day-to-day schedule.
A few folks asked for this and so I tracked down the schedule. I will try to get printed versions of this ready for practice next Monday.
Williams Arena/The Sports Pavilion Univ of MN
University of Minnesota
1925 & 1923 University Ave SE
Minneapolis, MN 55455
We can only have five people for the Wednesday night drop off, tentatively that list will be: Duck, Joe H, Matt H, Pat Y, and Matt Y.
We will have build 7-9PM on Monday 3/4/2013 unless school is cancelled for the snow storm. Repeat: If school is cancelled we will be canceling the build session.
We will be having a team banquet on April 9th, 2013 at 7PM in the RHS PAC Lobby. It is a pot-lach dessert affair. Please bring a dessert to share and a beverage of your own. Repeat: Bring your own beverages.
The dress code is “Robotics”. Wear your robotics shirt and a reasonably clean pair of pants, preferably ones that you wouldn’t also wear to build sessions.
We will meet Monday evenings until regionals. We have a few small things to work on and we could all use to do some more documentation until we’re ready to go.
- 7:00PM-9:00PM on 2/25/2013, 3/4/2013, 3/11/2013, 3/18/2013, 3/25/2013
- As necessary we will meet on 3/27/2013 to pack up the robot and get everything ready for the U of MN.
Thanks everyone, really looking forward to regionals!
It does not look like we’ll be heading down to St. Peter — but that does not mean we cannot practice and build!
Here’s the schedule:
- Monday Night 2/18/2013, 7:00PM-9:30PM. We’ll be going a little bit later. The plan is to get the robot fully into compliance with our inspection notes, then more driving practice.
- Tuesday Night 2/19/2013, 7:00PM-9:00PM. Regular times, the plan is to take the bumpers off, then bag ‘n’ tag! There will be cookies, it’s time to celebrate a little!
This schedule is final!
Be at Eagan High School at roughly 7:45!
