Application for Dobyns-Bennett Cyber Tribe - US FIRST Robotics Team - NEW TEAM MEMBER 2017-2018
If you've never been a part of the D-B Cyber Tribe, but are interested in joining, please answer the following questions as best you can. For the written response type of questions, 50 to 250 words would be a good range for each.

Before beginning though...

A motto used by FIRST Robotics is "The hardest fun you will ever have!" Being a member of the Cyber Tribe is a big commitment. In the fall, we usually have something to do about one afternoon a week. In March and April, team members in certain roles might work several afternoons per week, while others may rarely need to come in. In the core build window during January and February the team works every weekday afternoon and usually from 9-5 on Saturdays. Team members don't have to be there every single day, but we expect everyone to put in at least 80 hours by the end of February to be eligible to participate in the competitions in March and April.

The work is worth it, though! Seeing the 140 lb robot we build run around the tournament field wirelessly at 10 ft/sec shooting, climbing, lifting, or whatever the game calls for to win rounds or even win competitions against rivals from Tennessee, or teams from South Carolina, Florida, Texas and beyond is simply incredible.

If you don't have the time, energy, and excitement about competitive robotics to give at least 80 hours to the team, especially in the Jan/Feb time frame, please don't apply. Being on the team would not be a good experience for you. However, if you're fired up about robotics and ready to bring a big effort to make us the best team in Tennessee, the southeast region, and maybe even the world, we would love to hear more about your interest.

Note: there are roles on the team besides just building robots. If your passion is more around marketing, money, media, or management (yes, those all begin with "m") and you want to do things like that, with a fun group, you are still Cyber Tribe material and we still want to hear from you!

Deadline for a completed application is Friday Sep 18, 2017. (DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED!!!!)
