For those of you who do not know, on Saturday we found out what game our robot will play for the season.  The game is called "Ultimate Ascent".  The robot will be designed to throw frisbees into goals as well as climb a pyramid.  So far the build team has made a prototype of a throwing arm and is nearly driveable already!  The business team decided that we are going to have the t-shirt made through the Van Buren Tech Center.  They have also researched more items for our Bag 'O Swag, slightly altered the button designs, made a couple of game themed buttons, made several phone calls, and have a presentation set up for tomorrow.  

The build team will be meeting everyday except Sunday from now on.  Please come whenever you are able to!
