Thanks to all the well-wishers!

It's really great to represent and support all the great teams and volunteers in Virginia and DC, plus our friends in nearby states, too!

Nature's Fury has been a really fun challenge this year, and I know that FLL teams are really going to enjoy the World Class challenge in the fall.  Scott Evans told us that he's come up with some new missions that will really let teams showcase both knowledge and skills.

Check out Positive Aftermath at 1:09:20 of the World Festival finale video, and a teaser for World Class at 1:40:00  The video is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njK886Iypxo

Here's the end of one of the practice rounds (http://t.co/cqN9Ehcgr8), with FTC going full throttle right next door, plus 4 FRC fields hosting qualifying matches.  Can you find all 5 of the Virginia-based volunteers in this picture?  (No, neither can I...)

Good morning VA-DC FLL!

 

If you didn’t hear the news, Team Positive Aftermath finished the World Festival Competition in great style by winning the Innovative Solution award.  As you can imagine, the World Festival hosts the best teams in the World so it is highly competitive.  Winning any award is prestigious, so winning overall in this category represents outstanding effort by the team.  Please share your congratulations with them.

 

Also – our own VA-DC FLL Head Referee, Steve Scherr, was recognized as Volunteer of the Year for the entire FLL organization – send a shout out to Steve and thank him for everything he does to support FLL in Virginia-DC and beyond.

 

Finally – for a number of years we’ve been asked to run an advanced robotics camp for students.  It takes time to get that approved through the university but we’ve finally got it done.  This is our first time offering it so we only have space for 20 students.  If you’re interested, sign up quickly as I suspect the slots will go fast.  You can find out all the details at: http://www.jmu.edu/outreach/programs/all/robotics-camp/index.shtml

 

Registration for this year’s competition starts REAL SOON – so stay tuned to the USFIRST website for registration kickoff – try to get the lowest team number in the region.

 

Watch for changes to the VA-DC FLL website too – we should be up and running with a new look in May.
