Hello all,

Greetings from the rookie team Robotic Rhinos and their rookie (but trying hard!) coach, in Salem VA.

I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything in terms of the team's preparation for tournament, since our first choice is in just over three weeks.  It gets a little confusing working between the local and global requirements.

Can you check my list?  (Obviously these are mostly to-dos for the kids, but I want to make sure they don't miss a major item.)

-prepare for robot game, bring robot & laptop
-robot design journal/summary/other documents are OPTIONAL

-prepare 5 minute project presentation, bring needed props
-consult with at least one expert about the problem
-share proposed solution with at least one audience
-bringing a poster about the project & solution for the pit area is OPTIONAL

-core values poster is OPTIONAL

-t-shirts and other team spirit items are OPTIONAL, but a really good idea

-get all team members set up through - do I just print the roster and bring it, or do I need waivers printed, too?  Are there both firstinspires and va-dcfll waivers to do?

-pick tournaments - already done! (when do we hear?)

Thanks everyone!
