Build Season is FINALLY over! ..But not really.

I’d like to thank everyone for coming out these last few days, especially on Monday and Tuesday when members and mentors worked until 11pm. Much thanks to our project manager, Aaron Jacobson, for organizing the build season debrief yesterday and for leading today’s competition planning session.

Next week the team plans to organize competition carpools, food, scouting, robot access, pit schedules and strategy. In the following week, we will use our “out of bag” time to test robot mechanisms and autonomous. The schedule for team elections as well as competition jobs will be announced on Wednesday the 2nd. It’s a lot to accomplish before the 11th of March, but we will manage.

For now, keep your eyes peeled for an email with more competition details. If you already know that you are interested in providing a ride or food for our competitions at Glacier Peak (3/11-3/13) or Mount Vernon High Schools (3/18-3/20) you can contact me at vp-communications@ironriders.org.
