Not much energy today but when up in the attic looking for a black hood for C-series Don the other day I found some head light buckets never knew I had. 

Put one to use for a lamp for the shop desk.

Wired it to a old Radio Shack power supply.

What the heck if ding dong can hang a light off a tractor... :lol:

Nope orginals in great shape. Sockets rusty but a copper fitting brush cleans good.

Got our annual spring Play Day coming up next weekend at the Historical Society. For those who don’t know what a Play Day is it’s a day that we set aside 3 years ago for all of us members to get together and play with our toys. We have our annual show in September but we are all too busy putting on the show to really enjoy our toys. It’s also a time when we can get together and get any bugs worked out of any of our tractors or engines before show season kicks off. This year I’m gonna take our 1957 Cub LoBoy and see if me and a couple of the guys can get it running, so tonight after work I put the two new tires on the front that Rodger ordered for this tractor about 10 years before he passed and had been sitting on the shelf ever since. IMG_0535.jpeg.03222fd736105404cdbf3f9127b62f76.jpegIMG_0536.jpeg.c1ca913151c6f84d549200d60051664c.jpegIMG_0537.jpeg.9c1e81d6b47a47a75dd5fe6215d2a760.jpeg

 

We also stopped at the pond on our way out to the farm and caught our first fish of the season, I caught one good sized bass and a few small ones, and Courtney caught one small one, she’s got the pic of the big one on her phone but here’s some of the small ones we caughtIMG_0532.jpeg.5cc4d1e1ac273c1939a4ae6b53a1a3f3.jpegIMG_0533.jpeg.cb2aed9140579e7e89bd44d754f5b642.jpegIMG_0534.jpeg.1a6b037efe811c17e60eae37f737d382.jpeg

We spent the last three days with the high school robotics team I mentor.  We have two teams, the junior team made up of freshman and sophomores, and the senior team, made up of juniors and seniors. 

 

This is the 3rd regional competition we have attended.  There were 42 teams completing there. 

 

The junior team went undefeated through the qualification rounds.  They ended up being the alliance captain for the #3 seated alliance.  Their winning streak continued through the 8 alliance double elimination finals.  Winning this regional qualifies them for the world championships to be held in 2 weeks in Houston. 

 

In the first 15 seconds of each match, the robots execute a pre-programmed routine to move, pick up game pieces and score them.  The junior team's worked very well.  It scored 4 playing pieces in all but maybe 1 or 2 matches.  This won them the Autounmous Award.

 

The senior team did not fare as well.  They fought some mechanical and electrical bugs throughout the meet.  They kept after it, swatting the bugs as they came up.  By the end of the qualification rounds, they had the robot at 100%, climbing from a #33 low ranking up to a #5 rank.  For finals, they were chosen to be a member of the #1 alliance.  They lost in the 2nd round of the finals, dropping them into the lower bracket.  There, they were eliminated in the 4th round by the #2 alliance.  The #2 alliance was eliminated by the #4 alliance, who met their ellimination at the hands of the junior team.

 

The senior team did win the Excellence in Engineering Award. 

 

The senior team is currently ranked as #134 worldwide out of 3500 teams, and the junior team is currently ranked at #177.
