Ready To Go!

Just in time for tomorrow, we have both our robots working extremely well.  Some of the recent changes may have even improved on our competition performance.  After a good test run, we packed up our gear to get ready for tomorrow’s demo.

Tomorrow afternoon will be fun!  Drop by the Kingston Yacht Club from 12:00-4:00 to say hello.
