Saturday or Sunday Nov 14, 15 Fly?

Postby basicbill » Thu, Nov 12 2015, 07:32 AM

Decent enough weekend is in the forecast. If anyone wishes to get together. STC East Side, Busse, Sugar Grove or other works for me.

Going to be working on the yard today, so maybe tomorrow.

TMadz - my advice - the project and presentation are at least as important if not more important than the table score. The kids all want to work on the table game . . . .

Which competition are you attending? I'm missing ours as I'll have to be in FL for my father . . . .

I may have a ride if the newbie, my boss, who wants to use my PB2-4 to go snowboarding, decides to go. I will know around 10 a.m. and post up here, or give you a call.

Thank you.

We're a young rookie team and no one knew what to expect. Our project is a mess and will get few points. We'll be at Naperville on the 5th.

OK.

Steve, Dave... Busse still good or would you like to consider somewhere closer to you?

Just have fun then. Our team was only four boys, so I split up the boys when I found they were not making progress, and put one kid in charge of programming the robot (with the main coach who is good at programming), two in charge of the skit, and one in charge of research. I coached the other three into putting together and rehearsing the skit for the project. I also had them practice team building tasks like they might encounter when on site as a demo of core values - i.e. how to accomplish a task together. It was about getting them to agree how they would pick a leader, and divide up the tasks. They did OK after that . . .

. . . . although three years later they still fight over the robot design . . . . . and our project is a mess this year. They'll pull it together in December before the competition . . .

P.S. not sure if I will make it today or not . . . . if I do, I'll be skipping my son's FLL meeting. Plus yard work is not done. That said - east side sports complex, since Mark is not going? Wind from the southwest might also make Danada OK, although I'm not a big fan of that location any longer. While it's convenient, it's rarely good flying (too much variability & turbulence).

Nice wind today.

If I can join, it will likely be later. I'm still cleaning up leaves . . . . and I just ran out of gas for the mower.

Have my full vent rigged out. Probably extra vent would work if I had one. Flying dukane style too. Image
