The Arkansas kickoff event was well-attended by representatives from all 25 teams in the state. It was exciting to see that many kits including ones for 9 new teams - 8 true rookies and, well, us. There were several popular workshops including a couple on software and controls led by our mentor John Novak. The teams were all very positive about "Power Up."
After returning home from Searcy where our kickoff was hosted by FRC 3937 at Harding Academy, we met in our shop to discuss the game and rules. By about 10 pm we had several ideas for prototypes and systems that we were happy with pursuing.
