Check us out! :D (really sorry to Dark Matter..)
Hey guys! At super regionals, I took a pictures of a lot of the robots that were there! Sorry that some of the pictures are blurry, but everyone has a tight schedule and walking while clicking a picture button is kind of challenging.. Sorry again! Share this! Do a shoutout if we have your robot! :D
After three very long, nerve-wrecking and sleepless days, we The Sock Monkeys have made it to Worlds! This is such and amazing opportunity for us and not to mention: the community. A big thank you to our Sponsors and those of you who continue to donate so that we are able to go to this world wide event! The event will be taking place at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis Missouri from April 23rd to April 26th. This four day event will consist of the FTC, FLL, FRC, etc... so this isn't only an FTC event. That being said, I will be posting maps, directions and as much information as possible so that those of you who do come won't get lost, and will have the best experience they can.
Mrs. Eveland came down on Thursday (I think)- And so did our school principle Stacy Bandy. Mr. Bandy said he was really proud of us and saw somethings that they can help out on. It's awesome to see more than just parents there supporting us! We understand that our competition is the week of prom, but if any of you could come and see us that would be amazing!
Aside from all the hoo-rah's we would like to afford the trip. We are taking donations from basically anyone. We don't want to sound "desperate" but..if I am being honest, we need money. In the next two weeks we will be doing a 'door to door' type thing. We'll be talking to local companies, banks and business's in town. If any specific person/family wants to donate money, and wants their name to be said, that's fine! Just let us know. I'll be typing a list of everyone/everything for World's.
If any of you want to go to the World Championship- we strongly support it. :D Go out and buy a sock monkey hat! If you have any of our t-shirts or 3608's: Wear them! At Super Regional, a lot of the parents/team members were spread out throughout the crowd. It sooner became obvious that a lot of the team members that were in the stand and team members sat together. We would like to STRONGLY encourage that we all sit together. It benefits those of on the floor, so we can find our spots, parents and team mates quicker. So please! If you are coming to support Team 4443 The Sock Monkeys, sit together! We will have a big flag too, so don't worry, it should be fairly easy to find us. ;)
Once again: Thank you to our sponsers and those of you who are donating right now! We have never had a bigger opportunity than this and we are EXTREMELY thankful for all the help, support, and love coming in. As Rebbecca would say.... Do you bl
