July 28, 2016 - Day 4: Drive 11 Hours to Pick up a Van.

The clock struck midnight and Jon and I were awakened from our naps. We then packed the truck with a pillow and some food, and went on our way to good ol' Provo, Utah for our van. As Jon drove the way there, I slipped into an uncomfortable sleep. 11 hours later we arrived in […]

July 26, 2016 - Day 2: Pool Tests and A Bad Connection

The alarm clocked blared in my ear at 4:30 in the morning. Why? Well we had to be at the Transdec pool by 6:00 if we wanted good times for the pool runs. As I cracked my eyes open, I see all of the lights in the rooms turned on, the hotel room outside doors […]

July 25, 2016 - Day 1: Chips and Cereal. That's All You Need.

It's orientation day! Officially the first day of the competition and I'm feeling good. Jon and Michael woke up first and went for a quick run, followed by me waking up at 7:30 AM and going for a run down the harbour. Humid, sticky air hit me as I ran, and it was glorious. After […]

Roadtrips: Are they worth the effort?

A couple of months ago, the executive team decided that instead of everyone flying to the San Diego competition this year, we would try out having four or five members drive down to San Diego with the robot.

Last Pool Test. Facts.

Part 1 – 0 to 100 Randi’s blog assistant checking in. Sean S complains about Randi’s abilities to recruit new business members. I took his side and laughed because we’re wearing the same T shirt and that’s dope. Randi finally jumps in the pool after we continue to make jokes at her expense. You can’t […]

The clock struck 6:00 and the alarms started ringing. Exhaustion was in the air as everyone dragged themselves out of their beds, getting ready for what the day would bring.

July 23, 2015 - Day 4: All Tethered Up And Nowhere To Go.

Today, I woke up to Alvin, Mike, and Veselin passed out on their beds as they were the ones to stay up until 2:30 AM working on the robot last night. The rest of us probably fell asleep around midnight because we didn't have much to do on the robot since it basically had electrical […]
