First, thanks to Georgia McDowell’s help at the presentation to the Rotary Club at Olivia’s Chop House a couple weeks ago, we now have the support of our local Rotary club.
Second, Jonesville Lumber has agreed to help us with material for the Robot Parade Demonstrator. What is a Robot Parade Demonstrator? Well the kids can make our robot do some extremely amazing things but driving on the paved streets of Hillsdale is not the best way to show case them. What the team plans to do is operate the robot from the back of a pick-up truck while the robot is doing it’s ‘thing’ on a trailer being pulled by the truck. Will it work? Will it fall off the side? We’ll have to wait and see but a big things to Jonesville Lumber for the support.
Latest but certainly not least, is the awesome folks from Pivot Works, Hot Rods, Hot Cams, Cylinder Works, and Vertex Pistons. While the Cobrots do not have pistons, cams or cylinders on their robot yet, we know that these guys are the best source for getting bearing kits, pistons, cams and other replacement parts for your motorcycles or other recreational powersport.
