It was the big day! The moment everyone was waiting for. Bag Day had finally arrived, the day where – at midnight – the team would have to put their Robot into a bag until Competition.

Needless to say, everyone was pretty excited. After the briefing meeting, members split off to finish their assigned tasks.
