For 42700B, it’s me (5’11", 250lb, handsome as heck.), I just wanted to say that I don’t like that the notebooker is often a disinvolved role given to those who have less clout on the team. It should be the person whose job it is to build or their co-builder, not someone who has little involvement in design and building. @ the same time, I like the idea of introducing interdisciplinary collaboration between people more interested in the arts and people who are more spatial, it may just be handled poorly sometimes.
We don’t have one. As in, we don’t have a dedicated notebooker role. We have a really bad notebook as well, so maybe we should have one. However, one of my sister teams that has a lot of my friends on it has a god tier notebooker named Naomi. Holy goodness gracious she is amazing at it. I have never seen any school assignments with that much work put into it let alone a recreational activity.
Yep. We had a one time bracket tournament and they won the design award and in our league, which has three matches, then alliance selection, and then a tournament to decide a tournament champion, they will definitely get Excellence. No doubt about it.
