January 28 2017 - Progress Report

We're now three weeks into build and both marketing and build have made excellent strides in their areas. Build has been prototyping and the team knows what objectives it wants to go for; high goal, gears, and climbing the rope. Build was able to push out a working design for the shooter and is currently testing it vigorously. The climbing mechanism is also in the works and currently build has the claw that will be used to catch the rope. Build was also able to finish building the fancy new table and with some help from marketing they were able to put the cool new logo design on it. 

The Marketing side of things has also been quite successful. The theme of chairmans has also been decided. This year we will be using "ripening" as a motif and "maturing" and as the general idea. Outlining for the chairmans essay is in progress and planning for the chairmans video is going to begin soon. On top of that, Ethan is very close to completing this years entrepreneurship award.

All in all the past three weeks have been very productive and the team looks like its on a good path towards both the Lake Superior and 10k Lakes tournament.
