Team Duct Tape would like to extend hearty congratulations and best wishes to Team Minotaur #1369, the Florida FTC State Championship Inspire Award winners, and Spontaneous Combustion, team 3123 (Alliance Captain), Pandara #506 and Serious Business #3736, all members of the Winning Alliance, as they ready for the FTC World Championship in St. Louis in April! We’ll be watching and rooting for another great showing for Florida this year! You can see the full list of award winner at the Florida FTC event results page. (Be sure to check out the Florida State Championship Wrap-Up video while you’re there, too!)
Sorting through all our photos reminds us of just how great a time we had this past weekend! Embry Riddle Aeronautical University was an incredible, warm and welcoming host. As always, we deeply appreciate Florida FTC Affiliate Partner Michael Coleman’s committment to FIRST Tech Challenge and his management of high quality, efficiently run competitions. And we continue admire (and be in awe of!) Umbrella Guy’s remarkable, unflagging high energy and spirit in keeping an event fun and exciting all day long!
Our gratitude also goes out to the dozens of volunteers, from judges to referrees and support personnel, who make FIRST Tech Challenge possible in Florida. Without you, we couldn’t be us! 🙂 Duct Tape may be the Force that holds the Universe together (you know – it has a Dark side and a Light side…), but Volunteers are the Force that holds FIRST together, and a Universe without FIRST is a dim one indeed. Thank you all for a great FTC State Championship! Enjoy the pictures!
