Capital City Collaboration...and Housekeeping

School has started and we have many rookies. They came in at the right time to work because the Capitol City Classic offseason competition in Sacramento is in about 2 weeks and Freyja 2 is not finished. We plan to transfer the intake from the old "Freyja" to Freyja 2 by TOMORROW. We thought of creating an entirely new intake on Freyja, but considering the fact that school just started, homework is all over the place, and there are many housekeeping tasks that need to be done, it may not happen, so we aren't taking the risk. We already have a selected drive team for this offseason competition.Also, some of the rookies went through what I call Mechanical 101: putting together a combination of 4 old, bent-up shelves (picture bottom left). It was much easier said than done.

We are hosting a fundraiser at Round Table Pizza on 3045 Alamo Drive in Vacaville next Tuesday night from 5:30-8pm. We will be selling baked goods and will have one of our robots on display. Please come and support us!!

The video below is the egg drop that the rookies and veterans collaborated on to do.
