Hello Team! This week we have been working on improving the robot. We have been making more buttons and we are ready for the Division list to come out this Friday! We are looking forward to heading to Detroit on April 25th. We are hoping to be with our alliance members, Pwnage, so we can keep our legacy of Pwnavation. We have had a legacy of Pwnavation for 4 years. We are excited to go to Worlds because we have put some much time and practice into our robot.
We are going to Minnesota!! We leave Wednesday and Thursday. If you would like to watch on live stream go to https://www.thebluealliance.com/ and you will find the Minnesota North Star Regional and it will say online when the competition is on. Please watch and support us.
The shop is open everyday this week hoping to see everyone. There is a meeting Tuesday please attend! We will be talking about our trip to Minnesota. We need your sheets back for the Northstar Competition. Meal is needed for Wednesday night please help and sign up to bring food. If your parents are going to Minnesota please let Karen know when they are planning on coming down. We are planning on leaving on Saturday night after load-out. If you could please help with planning this trip it would be appreciated.
