VA-DC FLL Teams,
 
This is a great opportunity to participate in a workshop presented by the 
Inventioneers, the reigning FLL World Champions on Saturday, September 25, 2010 
from 3:00 - 5:30 p.m.  The event is being hosted by the YMCA National Capital 
located on 1711 Rhode Island Avenue, NW, Washington, DC.  Don't miss learning 
insider tips on how to have a great rookie season and how to build a strong 
team.  Last year over 15,000 teams which translates to over 150,000 students, 
from 50 countries participated in FLL!
 
The ABC's of FLL is open to all kids and their parents who are participating in 
FLL for the first time.  All areas of the program will be covered from getting a 
jump-start on your rookie season, to all the ins-and-outs of the FLL program.  
Ideas for preparing for competitions, an overview of what to expect in 
tournament judging sessions, robot demonstrations, hands-on activities and a 
special session for coaches round out the workshop. 

 
Because of space limitations, we ask that participants pre-register by September 
22nd (or until the workshop is full if that happens before September 22nd). 

 
Here is the link to the http://www.dc-first.org/images/abcsfllbrochure.pdf ABCs 
of FLL Brochure which gives the details about the program.  (You may need to 
refresh your screen if the brochure doesn't come up clearly right away.)  To 
register for the program directly, please fill out the on-line registration form 
by clicking this link:

if you have any trouble accessing the form.  Each registration will have a time 
stamp to ensure a "first-come, first-served"
policy.
 
Remember, this program is for all parents, students, and potential coaches who 
haven't previously been part of an FLL team.  Feel free to pass this email on to 
anyone you know who might want to learn more about this great science program 
for kids. Don't wait, sign up now! 

 
Remember, all students attending the workshop must be accompanied by their

Subject: RE: [VADCFLL-L] Coaches' Clinics

Dr. Manuel-Scott,

Thank you for offering the facility at GMU.  I know new coaches are
discovering that coaching an FLL team can be overwhelming, and the sooner
they can get some help the better.  If you can provide the space at the
school, I would be glad to run a coaching workshop at GMU.  

One evening 6:30-8:30PM this week would work for me (except for Wednesday
9/22).  Next week will work as well (except for Wednesday 9/29).  If we can
finalize the space quickly, we can let the rest of the FLL community know
about the time.

I've also CC: Steve Scherr and Desh Deshmukh w/ VAFLL on this e-mail to keep
them in the loop.

I, too, would like to know if there are any clinics close to DC. If not I
would be willing to host a meeting at GMU. This is my first year and I would
greatly benefit from a clinic.
