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:   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. 
You can also go online to and subscribe.

Please REGISTER with FIRST robotics.  It's free, and online.  Your parents will need to verify via their email.  Go to
We need this for tournaments, and you need it for scholarships, etc.  Your team is 4509, the "Mechanical Bulls" of Lanier High.  

Finally, share what you're doing with working folks like relatives, etc.  They might have companies to donate parts, cash or time, and we welcome parent support!
