As our team, 2495, I am seeing a big improvement in our organization skills for getting ready for this year's competition season. Since this is my first year fully committed to the team, I am ready to offer the team the skills I learned last year. I will expand my work with new team members as head of strategy to strive for success in the coming season.
When people can't make it or stay long after school for anything it can be frustrating. Since we have computers and the internet we should try video calling on Skype or Zoom. When the mentors are here and when someone is needed for something we can be able to video call and they would be able to screen share what's on their computer. And when someone needs a photo or file you can send it through one of these programs. Being able to talk to others and send files over the internet would certainly be something we should look at. Less people are behind and we can get information to the people that couldn't attend.
My plan for the team's safety is being built from the ground up. Our team safety team wise hasn't had much luck. It would always seem as if there was some sort of bad luck on our side, but this year I am hoping to change that. I plan to make sure that everyone on the team is contributing to some part of the safety of their team, whether it's from watching others and keeping them safe or being part of the safety team. I'll make sure everyone has done the right steps in order to keep the team as safe as it can possibly be. More to follow on my next post.

HWR at Girl Power. This is an example of a post to share results about an event. Posting results and photos is an excellent idea. If you use a photo, you can use Youzign to resize it (aka scale to best size). If you want you can optimize a photo using an online site -- Opimizilla located at https://imagecompressor.com/ Uploading the right scale of a pic and pre-optimizing it allows for pages to load fast, which is great for people using a mobile device. If you are a member of the HWR team and need credentials to use Youzign, contact Mr. P. Note: The images used as thumbnails for the blog are 275 px high, by 175 px wide.
