First meeting

Hope everyone had a great first week of school. Our first official robotics meeting will be Tuesday 9/3 from 6-9 as is the norm. I am requesting that all current members of the team be present. We should have several invited guests(from freshman orientation) and you should all bring someone new with you. Michele and I have a lot of important information for everyone and I’m sure the officer team will as well. Now is the time to begin planning for the upcoming build season as well as the time to grow the team before we lose all the graduating seniors. Please make every attempt to be on time so we can have a successful first meeting. Steve
