Today we opened up our pit to show our new team members how much workspace is available at competition. Our strategy is to set up the pit like we’d want it at competition, and then pack all of the needed items.
There are frames set up for sponsor boards and our banner.
There’s space for a work table (with tools in bins beneath), and a programming table that also holds our battery charging station.
We have a routine for charging batteries, and one person in the pit takes on the responsibility of charging batteries and changing them between each match.
It’s starting to look like home! In 10 days we’ll have this very pit set up in New York City…..hard to believe it.
Here’s a video from our pit last year to see what goes on (in time lapse) during competition.
