During out state robotics competition, we got to meet a lot of new people, eat some good food and have a lot of fun! It was overall a great experience. To top it all off, we are now going to regionals! This is a big deal for Osky Robotics because honestly, none of us were expecting that! A big thanks to all of our sponsors, help from parents, and the community. It's been a great season so far! A big shout out to the coaches.. Without their words of support, encouragement and help we wouldn't of gotten anywhere. Another shout out to Rebecca for making this happen! And a big thanks for the alumni that were there last night to welcome us home.
Now, back to business. Because we made it to the "next" level, we will have to start fund raising money for regionals. Later this week, I will update on coaches corner what the plan is and how parents/students can help. Stay posted!
On Friday, the robotics kiddos need to be here at the High School at 11:30! Make sure your papers get signed because they are due T
I have been waiting for the beautiful amaryllis to open in all of its glory so I could post a picture. I smile and think of my robotics family every time I look at it. Your generosity is overwhelming. The banner hangs on a wall in my kitchen/dining room and the gift card is on my refrigerator waiting for spring. How did you know Stams is my favorite store and the amaryllis is my favorite winter flower?
When the FTC Iowa needed another team to fill their roster they looked for a team with "Gracious Professionalism" and an excellent record of getting the job done; they had to choose team 4443. I am planning on arriving in Coralville on the 22nd around 3:00 so I can stay and watch the Sock Monkeys win it all.
Thank you again for the support you have given during my difficult time. Treatments are going very well but I am being cautious about returning to work full time. Soon, I hope.
It was so good to see Mrs. Eveland! Everyone was so happy and her face is priceless. ;) We robotics kids wore pink ribbons to support Breast Cancer and raise awareness. Along with them, some of the judges did too! It was a good experience over all. Even though we didn't make it to state, we fought hard, and tried are best.
Pictures from Saturday's competition will be put up throughout this week!
