    Hey guys sorry for not posting for a while but i thought it would be a good time to inform all of you that we have our first competition tomorrow (11/13/15). We are excited but are nervous at the same time. We are working out some final issues we are having with the robot, but hopefully we will have a robot that will work for tomorrow competition.

    Working on the robot for our first competition!

    Hello all, we have been hard at work on our robot for this year. This years game is not as easy as last years but we will get through it. We already have ideas for our intake system but we are still stumped on our movement method. More to come in the future.
