Bot-Busters is a FIRST FRC team. Dean Kamen is the founder of FIRST and inventor of the segway. He has asked that us to spread the FIRST brand and to tell people that we are a FIRST robotics team. Currently we do not have an official name because that is the name of an organization that sponsors us. So currently we are only the Bot-Busters (hence the [Your Name Here] Robotics). Our logo is in the upper left hand corner and is on our official letterhead. I would strongly suggest to not put the letterhead on any documents. The letterhead represents our team and puts ownership to any documents it is on. Our slogan is "Where the Bots go Bad."
We have chosen to do Lunacy (FRC 2009) for our Off-Season Robot. It is a challenging game that will test our skills and give us alot of experience. We have been starting to come up with ideas for the design of the robot. Even though our swerve drivetrain may not be the best decision for lunacy, but we have decided that we need to test the drivetrain ligitmacy. Our largest project however is the construction of the practice field. We have to build a deck which will be perfctly level and 70 feet by 39 feet. It has to have a roof to protect it from the elements.
Every Person needs to Finish thinking about which sub-team that they want to Join. The options are:
Finance and Fundraising is one of the most important Sub-Teams. They are in charge of the raising and distribution of funds that keep the team running. They are also in charge of the maintenance and updating of the website.
Fabrication is usually the largest Sub-Team. It involves all creation and modifications of the robots that we build. No experience is required for a position on the Sub-Team. You will be working alongside engineers and other mentors who like working with his or her hands.
"The best solution to a problem is usually the easiest one. And I'll be honest , killing you is hard. You know what my days use to be like? I just tested. Nobody murdered me, or put me in a potatoe, or fed me to birds. I had a pretty good life. And then you showed up. You dangerous, strang, lunatic. You Win. Just Go. It's been fun. Don't come back."

"Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing."
