Coming down the home stretch

We’ve got almost all our brackets made.  Tomorrow we’ll mount the floor loader, complete the deployment, and do some testing. 

Unfortunately, we’re having a bit of trouble with our belts and pulleys from Gates.  Our order was processed on 1/28 and we have a Fed-Ex tracking number, but Fed-Ex has no record of a supplier or ever having picked up that order.  A customer service rep from Gates is supposed to get with us soon to figure out what’s going on.  A bit more than a minor problem, because without belts & pulleys, we got no lift.  That means we’re a runnerbot that can score on the lowest level only. 

Surely we’ll get it in by March 17, and we can just install it on Thursday at the Boilermaker Regional, but we’d certainly rather not do that.  We’d like to be fully functional for the Muncie Pre-Ship Scrimmage.
