Post Bag Day # 11 – 3/9/15 – Competition Ready

Lab Opening Time: 1:30pm

Today the whole team gathered during enrichment to discuss the expectations for the Los Angeles Regional. Mr. Hoard and Mr. Black talked about how our pit should look, what people wear what color shirts, what time the bus leaves, what to do when we first arrive and to act professional and respectful at all times. The team also received the 2015 shirts today which look great!!

Once the meeting adjourned, Devon, Cynthia, and others helped to start packing for the regional. The team is using a new organizing system called Trello to help ensure that we pack all the necessary tools and equipment. Mr. Black also worked on getting the hexa-wall display working for our pit.
