9 days left

We have lost nearly 22% of the season to snow days.  Next season we will need to have a space outside of school that we can work out of.  This will be a big priority for us for sure.  Because of that 8 days of week three that we were not able to prototype we had to make some assumptions and take on some risks.  While many of our assumptions are working out for us 1 big one is not.  The way to lift the arm in a very compact way.  We have broken and rebuilt the structure several times and last night we broke the gear boxes.  These constant repairs have cost us nearly a week and will most likely consume most of next week with rework.  Our code team is significantly behind schedule and we may not be able to shoot accurately at our first competition because of it.

On the bright side, we are all getting a whole lot smarter about gears, reductions, gear boxes, structures, and rivets.
