Welcome to the new school year!!

Wanted to get out a couple of notes as we start the year.

First, we have been asked to attend a robotics demo at APL this Wednesday from 6:00 to 8:00.

We only need 3-5 kids(especially code and drive guys), plus a couple that would like to share and demo.

We'll pack at 5:00 and then head over, They'll either need rides or drive themselves.

Second, we will be attending the Battle o'Baltimore on Sept. 15. we plan to hold some a couple of organizational meetings prior.

Field set-up will begin right after school on the 14th, we'll want as much help as possible to unload the truck and build the field.

As a NASA house teams it's one of the "perks" we get in return for a lot of other support.

Site is New Town High School ( 4931 New Town Boulevard, Owings Mills, MD 21117)

Announcements will go out to the kids soon.

Third, We will again be working the apple fritter stand at Lariland farms on October 6, from 9-5.

We will need two shifts with @ 6 students and 4 adults per shift. Please let me know if you can help so we can start on a schedule.

Finally, we plan to go to the Brunswick Eruption Competition on November 3, in New Brunswick, NJ.

North Brunswick Township High School

98 Raider Rd.

North Brunswick, NJ 08902

This will take some planning for those interested in terms of transportation,etc. but this is a great event.

The host team won the National Championship this past year so good competition.

In addition we will be working with both robots as the McDonough School will be going as a pre-rookie team.

I've had a couple of meetings with them and seems like a good partnership will ensue.
