Day 0 of 2018 Buildseason: POWER UP!

It is kickoff time. The kickoff to FRC 2018 build-season was held at Solano Community College (Fairfield Campus). Vanden Robotics invited Armijo, Buckingham and Vacaville High School. Thank you to Solano college board for providing a delicious breakfast. At about 7:30 the FRC Game release went live and we all watched in amazement as yet another ingenious game was presented.

After that each of the schools returned to their respective campuses. RoboVikes all gathered together and both rookies and veterans discussed the most important rules.Then, just as prekickoff practice, the whats were discussed for the game. They were greatly debated over and refined.

Then we broke into small groups and planned out the hows with drawings of either chassis, intake, shooter, and/or climb designs. Then each and every person presented their idea, whether fully developed or not, to the class. We documented every idea and discussed a bit. At that point though, most people were mentally drained so we called it a day and left our notes until the next day, Day 1.

Thank you to all the parents and mentors who supervised, carpooled and helped keep us sane in this process.
