In contrast to the rest of the week, today we were able to rest a bit longer and recover from our jetlag, however we still had to get ready early for our first day of the championship. Today we had to visit the convention center to do robot inspection and set up our pit area. The pit area is where the team is able to set up their belongings, make repairs to the robot and judges and visitors can view the robot and talk about what the team has accomplished over the past season.
Before we left, we designed our own PVC pit structure, on which we can show off our sponsor flags, banners, and inspire award. We also hung our own Dutch GentleBotz flag, on which we aim to collect as many pins from other teams around the world to show our connection. We already got off to a good start!
