LONG POST ALERT!!! Sorry I have not kept y'all up to date on what has been happening. The last few days before game day are always packed with preparations. I know, I know, that's not a good excuse!:) Since I lasted posted we competed at game day and our robot did really well. We won 2nd robot and 3rd BEST. What this means is that we are going to REGIONALS!!! We're super excited that we were able to move on to regionals and we get to drive our robot again! Before regionals RoboTex is making a few changes. The construction team is working hard to improve the robot and the presentation team is preparing to WOW the judges.
Come watch us, and many more teams, compete at regionals. We will be competeing at the Dr.Pepper Arena in Frisco, TX on December 8-9 from 9:00a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Click here for directions
Hope to see y'all there!! :)
Here are a few pictures from our October game day!!;)
THE ROBOT IS FINISHED!! It's crazy that the robot is completely finished being constructed. Seems like yesterday was the reveal day! Now that the robot is built, all the drivers and spotters are practicing for game day, which is sneaking up on us. The notebook is being compiled and the booth is in progress.
RoboTex is making a lot of progress on all department fronts! The robot is almost finished being constructed and it's only week 2 of 6. The t-shirt design and color have been finalized, the website, as you can tell if you are reading this, has been updated. Our marketing team is preparing for several presentations, papers are being written for the notebook, and our show booth is in the design process. If all this is not progress I don't know what is! :)
Cowtown Reveal is only one week away!! That means teams from the Cowtown hub will finally (after a year of anticipaiton) get to see what the 2017 BEST robotics game theme will entail. If you would like to come and join the fun, then mark September 9th as busy because you will be at Martin High School in Arlington at 10:15am.
