Reflections For This Meeting: 

A tornado in St. Louis?!!? Really?!?!

Today is our last meeting before we leave for competition.  We spent several days during the week with extra meetings, getting everything we need done.  Today we are almost done, with just some autonomous to finish up, pieces and tools to pack up, and BOM to be finalized.  Once we finished that, we went on to practice driving, with our two teams.  Gavin worked on the autonomous to get the robot across the bridge and grab the doubler baton, and also the autonomous to empty the low rack and shoot all the batons into the one point goal, across the cliff.  We spent some time making a list of all the servo extensions, servo Y's, and prototype board wires.

 

 
We started out the meeting going over all the last minute details of what we need to get accomplished before taking off to St. Louis.

Karl and Chris went through everything- to figure out what to bring and pack.

I did last minute CAD and work on the BOM, while Chris and Karl practiced driving.

After finishing the last autonomous programs - Gavin timed our runs and different maneuvers so that we can get a mean average time for different moves. This will help us in competition - so that the coach knows what we can do with whatever time we have left during a match.
