If you haven't yet had your team runs some simulated tournament runs yet you
might want to consider doing so. We have two designated drivers and two
assistants and each got in 3 or more simulated runs today. We were not even
close to being ready and we ran missions that we knew we were not going to
get points on.

Afterwards, the team declared this the best learning experience of the
season. They immediately started working on solving some obvious missions to
add points that were not so obvious before and they delayed work on one
mission that may not be productive. The rest of the team made as much noise
as possible during the runs so that the driver and assistant could get a
better feel of tournament day.  

They started to figure out the strategy for touching an active robot and so
much more. The hour this took was so important for our last two weeks till
