Tried out a roller intake with grip take (May be the final design)
Start to decide on a climb design
Started to install 2022 programming software

We are really close to getting the hub finished. “Wood difficult, wrestling time right here”- FireDad
Got a working prototype shooter (Fly-Wheel), and it was able to shoot fairly high (Even shot at our Videographer Gustavo).
Participated in shadow-boxing our new tool chests
Using last years code as a reference point for this years code.
Our team leads participated in advance academics night. This event consisted of our team leads driving our robot from last year. We used the intake and shooter system to have fun with kids ages 4-14. Many of the kids were inthralled with the robot and had a great deal of fun. Thank you to LufkinISD for inviting us to this lovely event, we were thrilled to share our wonderful robot with this wonderful community

Routed out the 3rd rendition of the fly wheel prototype. Moved fly wheel mechanism and motors to new panel, along with testing angles by removing/adding dowels to the hood. Also routed out intake panels for Monday
Learned how to use Skill Saw, Paddle Bit, and Circular Saws. Attached the two side pieces and the bottom supports for the monkey bars. Should be completed by Monday
Started building the Chassis, they are 3/4th the way through and will be done with it on Monday
Tried to deploy robot to drive by code that they produced. Many complications but its a simple fix that can be done on Monday. The problem was that it the code could not find the ID Spark Maxes.
