Hello FIRST Team 1939 Members, Parents, and Mentors!
Hope you all had a wonderful winter break and are ready to shift into robot-mode!
Tomorrow, January 3rd, is the big day…our annual Kick-Off event and the reveal of the 2015 FIRST Robotics Competition game! We are set to host 230 students from 8 teams this year, but for those of you watching the weather, it could get a bit tricky this weekend…
PLEASE keep an eye on the weather tomorrow morning. Team members and mentors will be travelling from all across the metro area to Barstow, and the roads may be slick in one neighborhood, and fine in another. At this point the meteorologists are pretty vague about whether we will get rain, freezing drizzle, or ice tomorrow morning. SO PLEASE USE YOUR BEST JUDGEMENT, BE CAUTIOUS, AND BE SAFE! Err on the side of caution, and keep an eye on your e-mail for any late-breaking messages from Mr. Wood. Your safety is more important than making the kick-off on time.
- 8am – Breakfast in the cafeteria with pancakes, sausage, eggs, coffee, juice, tea, and milk. Teams will also be asked to make a poster with their team name and number.
- 9am – Group photos with our donations to Harvester’s. DON’T FORGET TO BRING DONATION ITEMS!
- 9:30am – Transition to the auditorium to watch the kickoff broadcast and learn this year’s game.
After the video – Brainstorming session in Price Hall (LS Commons)
Noon-ish – Lunch provided at Barstow
3:45pm (weather permitting) – End for the day
If you have any questions at all, please call Mr. Wood – his cell phone is 816-916-9663. Again, don’t forget to check your e-mail, bring Harvester’s items, and be safe!
