Design team is almost finished with prototyping as of Thursday, only a few mechanisms remain to be completed and tested on Saturday. Field Mock has been put on hold while the remainder of the students work on sorting the shop and creating some buttons. Preparation for our annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser has just begun, we're starting to send out students to reach out and sell placement ads and we will start selling tickets on Saturday. Along with selling tickets, we've been working on advertising for the website and social media. Along with all of this, brainstorming for the Robot Reveal and Chairman's has begun.

Our Spaghetti Dinner is approaching soon in order to help fund the services and facilities within our Robotics Program. Many amenities are being finished including the brackets for the bumpers of the robot that display our team color during the competition, in order for them to be attached to the robot. The programming team has made much progress in allowing the robot to move around the arena. The wiring has mostly been finished, and final adjustments are being made to the robot, such as the weight of the bot.

Despite this only being the second day of build season, our team is excelling with this years competition. Today we have almost completed our robot design and the climbing wall mock-up, which is a remarkable feat for us to achieve so soon. In addition, we finished our test-bot, and we will test it tomorrow to ensure its wiring and programming is correct. We have also been reaching out to and brainstorming possible sponsors, donors, and mentorship opportunities.
Our FTC Team is in full gear, getting ready for the new season. The Presentation Team has several presentations lined up in the next few months, the Business Team is working on our notebook, website and social media sites. Our design team has some great ideas and our robot is starting to come together.
