Yes, I am again going to Portland for a robotics competition, again at Rose Quarter.
I just need two more teachers to sign my permission form, then I am leaving on Wednesday, after school.
I’m driving down with other robotics club students, and we’ll make the drive fun.
There will be more when I get down there.
EDIT: All my teachers have signed my permission form, so I’m good to go!
The date for FIRST Robotics Competition teams to ship off their robots is drawing nearer. I’m in the Tahoma Robotics Club, and I am getting to see our robot come together. We hope that our robot will do very well at the Portland and Seattle Regionals, taking us to the National Competitions at Atlanta.
The Build Season started on January 9th, with the season kickoff. On that day, FIRST announces the game robots are to play in competition that season. After the announcement of the game, our club went back to our school to think of strategies to play the game this year. We get 6 weeks to design and build the robot from scratch.
Our team has a fairly long way to go, and only 8 days to get there. I’m feeling that we’re going to finish just barely ahead of time, and we’ll do very well at competitions.
It seems that every time I go on this blog, there’s some kind of security warning. “This website’s certificate is not trusted.” Yet, Darren insists that he knows the president of CaCert and that it’s CaCert’s fault for making crappy certificates.
Oh well, I hope this website isn’t phishing for my personal information.
And hopefully this security dilemma is solved before anything bad happens.
