Day 41: Chairman’s Submitted and All Parts Back

Chairman’s

Today, our Chairman’s Submission was published.  You can read it here.  The Chairman’s Award is FIRST‘s highest honor, celebrating excellence as a whole team in addition to success on the field.

Assembly

Today, we got the last batch of parts back from the powder coater.  At this point, all parts have returned from their respective sponsors.  Assembly has started and will continue tomorrow.

Scrimmage Preparations

Unfortunately, our practice field has gotten stuck in Chicago and got slightly delayed.  Due to the generosity of NASA, our title sponsor, the field was expedited and will be here between 5AM and 7AM on Saturday.  We will need to work extremely hard to get everything ready for the scrimmage.
