I can't believe how exciting this is, it's barely 3 days until the 2016 FRC Kickoff! FRC Stronghold already looks like it'll be one awesome game! With all of this in mind, lets start this season off right, and get all of that motivation and excitement pushing us in the right direction. We're 5 year veterans this year folks, lets show this regional what Team Komodo can do!
We're going to have our kickoff event at the shop this year, and we'll watch the kickoff vid via simulcast. The stream will start around 8:15, but the main portion will begin at 8:30 this Saturday, January 9th. Please try to be at the shop by then so we can watch the kickoff as a team. I know this is a bit earlier than typical for Saturdays, but I’m sure your enthusiasm for the season will help you get up just a little bit earlier! It is really important that we're all in attendance for the kickoff stream so we can all be on the same page for breaking out into our brainstorming groups to generate concepts.
Also, please make sure to keep an eye out for the encrypted game manual. Ashley will try to share a link with everyone when she sees it. Make sure you download the file so we can open it up as soon as the game is revealed. Remember: rules govern everything we do here, so it is crucial to stay abreast of the rules throughout the season! Please also remember to bring a lunch along with your passion and enthusiasm!
Finally, to anyone who hasn't signed a copy of the Team Komodo Code of Conduct, we really need that by Saturday. The Code of Conduct details each student's commitment to the team, outlines what the team expects from each student as admirable conduct, and includes FIRST's photo release waiver! If you haven't signed this and turned it in, please click on the button below, download the form from the page it will bring you to, and then print, sign and turn in the form.
I hope to see all of you on Saturday!
