Build Season Update

Hello FRC teams and fans! As there hasn't been an update in a while, I wanted to assure everyone that Apex is still striving to reach the peak of excellence!

Build season began in January and now we have a few more weeks to compete everything and ready up for STEAMWORKS! Right now, Apex is working on finishing the practice robot and starting to build the competition bot. Next week, it's coding time! Our wonderful programmers have been working with additional technology, utilizing PartyStalker v.01, our recommissioned off-season robot, as a guinea pig. Meanwhile our electrical team is still doing double duty and pitching in to help fabricate both bots.

Documentation and Media have lost some members, but are still striving to put out content on the less visible fronts of Apex. Apex's animation for the Digital Animation Award has been submitted a few months after its announcement, and work on the reveal video has now commenced.

We want to thank our amazing sponsors for their contribution. Without the help of C4 Labs, AeroTEC, and Concept Systems, our robot would not look or perform as well as it (hopefully!) will. We also want to thank fellow PNW team 2046 for helping us out with cutting our drive rails! Thanks to all the people that have helped keep this season going!

We look forward to seeing friends and competing at Auburn Mountainview. Until then, we wish our fellow robotics teams a smooth build season and a great run in STEAMWORKS!
