We have to stop building on Feb. 22!!  We want to be done at least a week before, so we can drive this thing!  We can update the robot during the week before a tournament, but that should be for emergencies and code.

This week robotics will meet after school on Wednesday, NOT Friday.  And, if we don't make good enough progress this week, we might need to do Wed AND Friday next week, maybe even Saturday.

The parts we sent out are done, except for our 85-degree brackets.  However, we can modify some old 90 degree brackets for that.  

Coding is still an issue.  They made great progress updating the roboRio, but issues persist.  Once it's ready, we need to mount it.

- the drive base is ready
- we have a bumpers plan, need to make them and install them
- bucket legs are ready for cutting
- computer board is cut, ready to hold roboRio and electronics

Tasks to do:
- make 3D printed feet for bucket to attach to base
- build bucket legs and assemble
- attach gear plopper to bucket
- make gear plopper stick for plopping
- make BPU
- make climber
- program robot
- make "ball hopper" for practice
- rewire batteries, charge them
