Fun at the Regional FRC Competition

Wow, what a great day we had at the 2010 Granite State Regional (GSR) FRC event! Hundreds of kids and their parents who had never heard of FLL and Jr. FLL came to our demo table to see an FLL robot up close and hands-on! We gave out almost four hundred of our Don't DUIT buttons and talked to many others to spread the word about the dangers of DUIT - Driving Under the Influence of Texting.

David Price, emcee extraordinaire, invited us down to the playing field area to introduce us to the entire crowd as the four time NH State Champion FLL team and we took the opportunity to present outgoing FLL Operational Partner, Ms. Kerry Creeden (who also co-chairs the GSR event!) with a token of our appreciation for the many years she has unselfishly devoted to FLL in New Hampshire. She's awesome!

Thanks to Ms. Nancy Lane of FIRST Place for inviting us to team up with her for this event! We had tons of interest in our program for helping people find and form teams - FLL TeamMatch Forum! If you are interested in this service, email us at TheInventioneers@yahoo.com so we can send you an invitation. More on TeamMatch coming up soon! Check out our slide show from the day's activity:
