Program the auto uber dump and uber scorer

Reflections For This Meeting: 

The Auto programs are doing great

When a wire burns out it is a HUGE pain to fix

We are relatively lucky with how easy it was to fix the burnt out wire/servo

 Today was primarily spent working on programs and fixing some of the older ones. When placing the robot in starting position we saw some smoke coming from the robot. Upon closer inspection and the removal of batteries we found a servo wire had heated up and melted. Replacing it we found we had shorted it.

The auto dump program dropping all five batons accurately.

After fixing it - we had to rewire and put everything back... then back to programming!
