Teams, 
 
As you prepare for the FLL Event, just in case you wanted a team
building fun time: 
 

Have you ever wanted to see five foot robots launch frisbees into 80
foot goals? Have you ever wanted to watch robots that weigh more than
100 pounds climb 50 foot towers? Sounds really amazing and impossible,
doesn’t it? Well it’s possible. And you can see it for yourself at ILITE
robotics off-season event - IROC. 
IROC stands for ILITE Robotics Offseason Challenge and features the
previous year’s FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition), that being the
daunting competition of Ultimate Ascent. Ultimate Ascent combines
ultimate frisbee and mountain climbing into one amazing challenge. IROC
allows robots to battle it out in the field once again, and it lets
everyone see how amazing robotics can be.
So ILITE would like to personally invite you and everyone else you know
to IROC. Bring your friends and your family to come and watch
Battlefield High School’s ILITE robotics team and 24 other teams from
DC, Maryland, and Virginia. We will have concessions, a ‘Meet the FTC
Teams’ where you can come and meet other students who are involved with
a different type of robotics, and spin art. We are also holding charity
drives - Toys for Tots and a food drive for haymarket Pantry. Please
bring in any toys or nonperishable foods that you would like to donate,
anything and everything is appreciated.
           ILITE robotics also hosts an FLL (FIRST LEGO League) on
November 16th, as well as an FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) qualifying
competition on December 14th. Both are open to the public and are all
day events. This is after IROC, so be sure to look out for news for
these fantastic events!

Date:        November 2nd  2013
