February 11 2017 - Progress Report

Five weeks into build season and week zero is looming ahead like a turbulent storm. Build is scrambling to get the bot done while marketing is kind of just... relaxing. The amount of progress made on the bot since the last progress report is a testament to the skill and dedication of the build team. The bot is now "98 percent done" according to Drake. Build just needs to finish getting the climbing arm working and in place but everything else on the bot is there and working. Lastly, the Bumper Boiz just got their pool noodles for their world famous bumpers and are starting to plan out their construction.

Marketing has also made excellent progress in its endeavors. Maybe not quite as impressive as nearly finishing the robot, marketing has completed the chairmans essay. Now marketing has to worry about getting the presentation written and ready for performance as well as getting the video filmed in a timely fashion. Both projects have had work started on them and more progress will be made in the weeks leading up to Duluth and then to Minneapolis.

That's all for this report. We'll be back for week zero. Let's get this bot done!
