FRC Meeting November 3, 2011

Let’s start by saying:

CONGRATS to the Medina Varsity Soccer team on winning the Section VI, B1 Championship for the FIRST time in school history!!!

CONGRATS to the Medina HS Marching Band on their NYS Championship in Syracuse this past week too!!

It has been a great week for our friends and teammates from Medina.

Our meeting was a small group, but we did accomplish some things and have homework to accomplish more at the next meeting.

1)  Team members must go to usfirst.org and register in the STIMS system as members of team 4093.

2) Team members should spend 15 minutes a day looking at FRC related things.  Start with this site http://lego.wiksclan.com  (where you are now) and check out links to usfirst.org and others.  Also, go to youtube and watch video of previous FRC competitions.  LOOK at the robots!

3)  COMMENT on this post.  Ask a question, tell us you were here, suggest a name…  whatever, but comment so that we know you are doing your homework 🙂

4)  You HAVE to pick a nickname for your team at the next meeting.  One of the things you have to work with alot is deadlines.  SO, on November 15th you MUST have a nickname.  Google first teams and see what they are already using and brainstorm.   As I said last night, if you don’t do it, you will be forever known as the “pink ladies”.

The other plan for the next meeting is to look at a previous challenge and think about strategies for that.  You will also begin building a base from the box of parts that you looked at last night.

Congrats to the founding officers:  President, Morgan Seielstad, Vice President Ben Miller, Treasurer Kyler McQuillan and Secretary Nick Ettinger.
