OK guys! So, we have 44 days left to carefully design, prototype, program, and build our very own Robot for FRC 2016: STRONGHOLD! We have been rigorously updating the site with the newest info on everything you need to know about this upcoming robotics season. From the Parents Page with the basics of Stronghold, to the Game Manual and FIRST Stronghold Game pages with everything you may need to know get started with a firm understanding of the rules. This includes the limitations and lack-thereof for you to form an idea for how the robot should be built and function. Fabrication and programming teams will be spending the first week (Monday-Friday, 3:00-6:00 or later) hammering out a fool-proof  design plan and a general accompanying operations and strategies. From there Fabrication will then we working the second week to build a prototype design to work out major kinks before we move of to week 3 and phase 3: production (please check out the Calendar for more details. Programming team will be working with setting up new electronics and testing out code with our now retired robot Ignatius Prime. Logistics will be working on accompanying finance and business attributes of the team during this period. I hope to see all of you there when we kick off our own building on Monday!
