New arm is half way done

3 days into the new arm and we are halfway done.  We have learned so much over the last 6 weeks that designing, fabricating, assembling and testing is becoming second nature.  This is a team that has gelled over the last 8 weeks and invested over 5,000 hours of time into making this season their season.  This is a team that is driven to overcome every challenge that we encounter and work to push every team member towards greatness.  Can you hear the music…because in two weeks it is going to get a heck of a lot LOUDER!!!!

“Success is like anything worthwhile. It has a price. You have to pay the price to win and you have to pay the price to get to the point where success is possible. Most important, you must pay the price to stay there.”
