Our 2018 Season game challenge is here!
We gathered at CFI for the game reveal early Saturday morning. The excitement was flowing, even if you can't tell from the somber/serious faces in the first pic! The smiles picked up more as we watched the live broadcast from FIRST and then later after we took time to break up into groups, read sections of the manual and then present them to the team.
After going over the game manual and having lunch, we drive right in to projects. Some building field elements, some start prototyping, some begin the strategizing sessions to help us decided what goals we need/want to achieve. The room was buzzing with activity and it was a productive first weekend of Build Season!
And when you build field elements they must be tested properly! Which is why we keep lil Chimichangas around.
It's also important to practice safety first, but a little singing and dancing is allowable. Sydney show us the way.
A clean and organized room before the chaos begins.
It's always good to end one season with some cleaning, organizing and figuring out what will be needed as we start another. Also good to get a shot of this as it will not be this way for quite some time! In a few days the tools will be buzzing, room rearranged, ideas flying around, parts scattered in the mix of prototyping and building...an endless list activities that will change this scene quickly as our six week Build Season begins.
Game reveal is on Saturday. We're excited and ready to begin all over again. 2017 was an amazing year for our team. Lots of growth, challenges we learned valuable lessons from and incredible moments we'll never forget.
Bring it on 2018! These fire-breathing mythological beasts (oh yes, it's true) are ready to take on whatever you throw at us!
