On Sunday, October 25, Adam Heard from team 973 The Greybots came and worked with us to prototype mechanisms for the 2007 FRC competition. Throughout the day, we designed and built  mechanisms out of wood that serve to drive around and pick up inflatable tubes. Last year, we decided on set mechanisms to build and stuck with it the entire season regardless of any changes in strategy. This coming year, the team plans to take a more aggressive approach; building every possible mechanisms we can use in the competition to see which ones works the best.
