Day 7

Although today is Martin Luther King day we still met, from 3 pm to 6 pm.

Continuing a very disturbing trend, even less members showed up today than on Saturday.

Fortunately, with the help of our mentors, we were able to finish building a loading station for loading the gear.
(After reusing parts from last year's field elements to build the loading station, one team member exclaimed, "Reduce, reuse, recycle!" and unintentionally reminded Yours Truly of Recycle Rush).

Meanwhile, gear intake design and prototyping continued. Many sketches were drawn as subteams continued to work on their designs.

Software worked on implementing a SmartDashboard widget that would allow the drive team to select an autonomous mode.
