Thanks to all for hanging out with robotics this first month, especially our beginners! 

We hope you enjoyed building so far, and there's lots more to come.  In October we will be playing in our first tournament, using last year's robot and game.
Here's that tournament info:  https://gafirst.org/events/grits-2017/   It's on a weekend, sorry!

Also, in a few weeks we will also start to use the "Remind" for the team. LHSFRCTeam is our Remind. Anyone can subscribe, but there will be some irrelevant things to non-team members. To sign up, send a text with the message @a8abd to the number 81010. If you’re having trouble with 81010, try texting @a8abd to (678) 802-8621.

First FIRST Robotics Meeting is Wed, Aug. 9

In room 728, after school, until about 4, we will have our first FIRST Robotics meeting.  We need to see who is interested in what, and who might want a leadership position.

For new folks, you are our priority!  Beginners are the reason for what we do!

First goal is to promote the group:  posters, t-shirts, etc.  In addition, we will discuss fundraising, training and other topics.

This is exciting, here we go again!!  If you miss this week, be sure to show up next week!
