Hi All,
  I know that some teams are just starting and that having a good table is
important.  I'd like to give a shout out to the Republic of Pi for their
YouTube video highlighting a fantastic portable FLL table.

https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.youtube.com_watch-3Fv-3D1qbbpkCmQAw&d=CwIBaQ&c=eLbWYnpnzycBCgmb7vCI4uqNEB9RSjOdn_5nBEmmeq0&r=J5fb0ELkRoh7TzAGYz99sSMvB-c7i4AC0HDT2OVPrww&m=PJP5Jwgq74FBI6ruYUHXYRcDiyQrO0SPi_E2ZaqNk-s&s=1NllatYxaIFPFfK-fEKJsqes_YV9gqQx8d3txzVuecI&e= 

  We built this table last year, after trying both the standard plywood
table *and* a foam table and I can say with confidence that this is the
best table to build if you have somewhat limited space and might need to
move between houses.  In addition, it was easy to store in the offseason.
The single-best design feature of this table is the 6" "shelf" that allows
us to setup the shared mission model without any hassle.  It's well worth
it.

  If you decide you want to build this table, feel free to contact me
off-list and I can share our experience and some build tips that may not be
obvious from the video.  Note that building this table does require use of
a Circular Saw, so it's likely that you'll have a couple of parents
building the table while the kids are inside working on robot
design/project.  We were able to build the entire table in about 3 hours,
and the kids can set the whole thing up in about 5 minutes.

Happy FLL'ing

-Frank
