TDT members enjoyed a recent visit to our long time friend and mentor, Paul Markun, of Tampa Technik. As always, the gift of his time and expertise was deeply valued, so we were humbled to receive a financial contribution from Mr. Markun on top of his expert guidance. Tampa Technik is a remarkable facility and Mr. Markun is an incredible manufacturing engineer, who routinely creates new machines and products based on conceptual design ideas – as he told us, pretty much what TDT has to do each season when we get a new challenge.
We were also honored to receive a generous donation from McCormick-Stevenson Engineering and Design . McCormick-Stevenson has a long tradition of supporting FIRST in Florida, having mentored TDT and other teams in PTC Creo Elements, and volunteering at FIRST tournaments.
We’re deeply grateful for the support of both Tampa Technik and McCormick-Stevenson and will do our very best to represent our great sponsors graciously, professionally and successfully! And many thanks, too, to all our great supporters throughout the year. Your kindness, encouragement and guidance is deeply valued.
