can you say "lumber"? During our excellent trip to Home Depot, we got all the wood for the goals and cut all the wood for the center goal. the one for the side goal still needs work but we have all the parts. the new Meiter saw is one of the sweetest things i've ever seen! it too has a laser but the blade is a bit to the RIGHT of it, just in case you're using if without ME there... :)
Shirin brought awesome food today. hannah and i estimate that we consumed about 2,000 calories just in chocolate cake...yummmm....
THE CAMERA IS READY TO ROCK AND ROLL!!! we finished the stand and hooked up the servo motors. it moves really awesomely. Em, is it really bad to move the stuff connected to the servo motors? you can hear it turn but it doesn't sound terrible. although last year the VAN DOOR (like a car)died and none of us really knew. we kept the spinning to a minimum today though, just in case... :)
thanks to J-Rock for comming with us to the Home Depot to buy wood and screws. if anyone can think of a more original nickname let me know, appearently it's not "original" enough (j-rock was his college nickname)haha.
i'm pretty sure we have decided on the "spinning wheel" design for shooting balls. so get read to "aim high"!!!
