It’s that time of year again! Before the September 9 FIRST Tech Challenge international kick off, we invite teams around Florida and everywhere to join in our annual Guess the Game Challenge! Share your best guess on how the new season game Relic Recovery will be played, and we’ll award one in-state winner a handmade duct tape prize and we’ll send a special prize to the person with the closet guess, out of state. So start following along the FIRST Tech Challenge blog and looking for clues, and enter your best guess HERE.
Super excited to be heading to the 2017 South Super Regional in Athens, GA March 23-25, after being part of the Winning Alliance with teams Super 7 and Mechromancers at the Florida FIRST Tech Challenge State Championship a few weeks ago!
We’re very grateful to the Tampa Bay Robotics Foundation for defraying event registration costs, but we still need to pay for travel, food and lodging. To help reduce costs for families, we’re holding a Game Night Fundraiser Friday, March 17 at our new home at Regency Park Library in New Port Richey.
It’s a donation based fundraiser, totally free to
attend and play games, enjoy some food and see TDT’s 2017 robot, built for the Velocity Vortex game.
Give what you can, if you can, and if you can’t give, just come play with us and see why FIRST Tech Challenge is such an awesome engineering competition.
Hopefully you’ve been keeping up with the FIRST Tech Challenge blog in the last few weeks, and if you have, you might have seen some allusions to game hints there, like on July 1 for instance. Check out some of the posts after that, too, to see if anything looks promising. Even you don’t see any game hints, you’ll get lots of good information for you new season.
Either way, you’ve got from now until September 9 to enter your best guess for the 2016-17 FIRST Tech Challenge game. The team that comes closest to the actual game wins a handmade duct tape gift! (Last year’s winner took home an awesome RD D2 made out of duct tape.)
Good luck, and Go Teams!
