2nd !!!

I have told you before that C is on the Robotics Team. They go all over to compete (including Nationals in Georgia last spring). This past weekend was a a competition in Rochester, NY at Rochester Institute of Technology. They worked super hard during build season and made the Robot to the specifications given by FIRST. All that work Paid off.....they came in 2nd ! I am so proud and cant wait to see the medal and trophy next time C comes to visit.

I wanted to post some pics....but the only pics I have seen are on facebook and it is being finicky and not showing pics to me right now. Only goofy white boxes with red X's. So maybe later.

Don't know if you have a Flicker account, but I hear you can post to Facebook from that. Saves you the hassle of posting in more than one place.

Congratulations! We did our first FTC competition this year. It is such a wonderful program and a true challenge for the kids. How proud you must be for your team to place 2nd. That is quite an accomplishment. We placed 11th of 24 this year in Cincinnati. Maybe we'll meet some year at competition. Wouldn't that be funny?!

I know Tonya took a picture of the trophy. I don't think the mentors are letting those two trophies outta the workshop tho. Haha. Otherwise I would make sure he brought it home with him to show you. :) Did you see the pictures of us with our alliance partners??
