It’s the beginning of a new year and we’re headed to a new location: Deep Space! On January 5th, FIRST released this year’s game: FRC 2019, Destination: Deep Space. Here’s the link to the game animation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rb1byfe_5TU

On January 12th,  Cypress Circuits had our annual Lock-In: a 24-hour meeting at the Treasure Room during which the entire team strategized for the upcoming season, prototyped potential mechanisms, and participated in various team-bonding games.

In the afternoon, we held our annual regional strategy meeting with: Monterey High Robodores (Team 4255), Pacific Grove Breakers (Team 5104), Santa Catalina Nuns-N-Bolts (Team 6665), and Plus Ultra Team 7413. Each team gave presentations about their upcoming season strategies and received feedback from other teams. After the presentations, teams and mentors split up into breakout sessions to discuss Climbing, Hatch Mechanisms, Coding, and Cargo Mechanisms for the next couple of hours.

By the end of the Lock-In, we finalized our design for this season’s robot, and now we are ready to head into build season!
