15 days, 5 hrs, 25 mins until Stop Work. Where does the time go?
We are quickly approaching that point in time where panic modes sets in. We are NOT there yet, but, we all need to pay attention to detail. Over the weekend we found a couple of, as we call them at work, “opportunities,” items that didn’t quite go right that will enable you to showcase your problem solving skills and engineering abilities to recover and gain back the time and effort that was lost. Rosie needs to go on a diet and and a missed dimension caused a component to be cnc machined undersized and needs to be made again. We will recover, but time is not our friend right now!!
So, that being said, it’s all hands on deck. If you are on manufacturing, design, and robot assembly, now is the time to rise to the occasion and show us what you got! Software—-be ready! Electrical–we’re coming!
Fundraising—you all know the score. We are taking orders on Butterbraids, those awesome, scrumptious breakfast pastries that melt in your mouth! (And return a nice percentage profit if we hit 200 breads sold) If you haven’t gotten your order sheet, see Lynne. Also, Bon Ton coupon books are here, $5 per book, we keep the money, customer gets discounts on Bon Ton merchandise. Win win!
While we are talking about fundraising, is there any school related, band related or any other related function scheduled for 14 June? We need to pull in the Tournament of Rosie date 1 week due to person conflicts for several mentors.
