Today we started our day out with a trip to Polaris Industries in Wyoming Minnesota. Thank you to Andy Strom for inviting team 5172 to a meet and greet at the facility. This was a new experience for us and we found it to be very interesting. We gave a presentation at the start and once we were completed with the presentation had an opportunity to talk one-on-one with employees of Polaris Industries. Following the meet and greet we were taken on a tour of various areas of the Wyoming facility. We also learned about non-disclosure and signed those forms for our experience in our tour. After that we went to load in at the Mariucci Arena. We got the pit set up and worked out a few tweaks in the robot. We got to test our autonomous and got some practice in. After that we went back to the hotel, had a team meeting and then celebrated Robert Truscinski, our bus drivers, birthday!
Everyone is excited for the State Competition tomorrow!
