All FLL teams, 

You are welcome to come and attend the Robotics Day event at the Science
Museum in Roanoke, VA, Saturday, Nov. 1st, 2008, from Noon until 3 PM.  A
group of Southwest Va educational robotics folks are gathering to
demonstrate and inform the public about FLL, FTC, and educational robotics
in general. 

We currently expect to have four FLL teams demo their robots on an FLL
table, and to present their research presentations to the public as part of
the outreach component of the research project.  We also expect one FTC team
to demo their robot, and some additional educational robotics demonstrations
as well.

If you'd like any additional info, please call or email me anytime.

Best Regards,
Kevin
