We made some decisions in Week 1, and now it's time to get going!  We have Period 1A prototyping the ballpickerupper (BPU), and 2A working on the drivetrain and rope climber.  Most likely 1A will also work on the "bucket", and 2A will work on electronics.

For autonomous (AUTO), we plan to hang a gear, and maybe get more Fuel, maybe even score Fuel!

For drivers (TELEOP), we are going to focus on lots of Fuel, followed by a rope hang.

Weekly after school meetings will most likely need to be Friday, due to my other obligations.  If it's not too big a conflict, maybe some team members would stay Mondays with TSA, and we might add on one more day later.

Goal for the week:  working prototypes, and a start on detailed plans for the real thing.  Prototypes don't need to fit, they don't need to be pretty, they need to work!
