Monday, 6:30pm-9:00pm- MANDATORY TEAM MEETING. If you want to come to the Finger Lakes Regional Competition on Friday through Saturday, you must come to this meeting.
Tuesday, 6:30pm-9:00pm- This is a meeting for DRIVE TEAM MEMBERS ONLY. We are going to be practicing driving the robot around, so if you aren’t on the drive team then you don’t have to come today.
Wednesday, 6:30pm-9:00pm- Today we will be packing up the robot for competition, so ONLY THE HEADS OF EACH SUBTEAM need to come.
Thursday, 7:30am-8:30am- DRIVE TEAM ONLY. The students who will be coming will be picked up at their own schools and taken to RIT. We will be setting up for the competition and making sure that everything is in place. And yes, any people who go today will be taking a small break from school.
Friday, 7:30am-6:00pm- Competition day. The students will be picked up from their perspective schools and taken to the competition. Again, every student coming will basically be taking the day off from school. The actual competition will last until 6:00, and then there will be the Team Social, 6:00pm-8:30pm. Emails for this were sent out and students are supposed to sign up for this before hand. Every team will be able to hang out, eat dinner, and engage in various activities such as board games, ping pong, and arcade games and karaoke. Dinner will be served from 6:00 to 8:00. If you come to this event, YOU WILL NEED TO BE PICKED UP BY YOUR PARENTS. There will be no transport back to the schools for pick up.
Saturday, 7:30am-11:00am or 6:00pm- More competition. STUDENTS MUST BE DROPPED OFF AND PICKED UP AT SUTHERLAND HIGHSCHOOL. How late we are staying will be dependent on how well we do in the competition. More information will be revealed later on.
All of these details will be further explained on Monday’s meeting which, as a reminder, IS MANDATORY. Hopefully we will see you all at the competition! GO PITTSFORD PANTHERS!Read More »
You heard me right- we only have a few days until our first competition. (see what I did there?) We are still working on getting our new robot to function so we can practice before the competition, so we have a lot of work to do.Read More »
