Competition Season Meeting

Meeting Date Meeting Time Location Attendees
Wednesday, November 12, 2014 6pm-9pm TCHS Brandywine Laura, CJ, Josh, Justin, Braden

Tasks Reflections
Learning to Weld
  • Laura and CJ learned to weld, along with another FRC rookie.
  • They were taught by Keith, the lead welding mentor.
  • It was really fun, but really hard to get used to.
  • Sometimes, it smells.
Cutting Aluminum for Chassis
  • Josh worked with Justin and Braden worked to finish all of the aluminum parts in order to allow the welders to weld the chassis
  • They were able to finish all but two of the parts. Luckily it was not that difficult for Braden, Josh, and Justin to mill them all to the exact position.
  • Next meeting, they hope to finish all the parts for the chassis. Then the pieces will be welded, and the chassis for the robot will be done!
  • After the chassis is complete, the team can start implementing the linear slide, the shooter/bapper, etc.
