The Arm is Done and We Are One Week Away

We are now T-minus 7 days till the first FRC District Event at Walt Whitman and the lab is hoping and the team has an extra special glow in their eyes.  The Pit team is finalizing the Pit plans, the awards team is finalizing the awards, the scouting team is practicing their process and the code team is working through the final tweaks in the code.  And to top it off  the new arm is ready for testing a day early.  Ye ha.  Now we have to get it tweaked and ready to get mounted on Monday.
