On Friday night the team had its end of the year dinner.  Many thank yous were said along with some parting words from our seniors.  Thank you again for all of the sponsors, parents, teachers, volunteers, school officials, former team members and community members for everything you did for us this summer.  All in all it was a great night that signaled the start of next season.

And tomorrow the team will be showing off LIftzilla to the the Pyle middle school students.  This is the team’s first trip to the middle school this season. We will be starting to work with the local schools to start FTC and FLL teams over the next few years so that we can create a feeder system for robotic skills at the FRC high school level.

Will post more later in the week.
