The reason it is our almost off season is because we still possibly have two more competitions to go to. There will possibly be IRI (Indiana Robotics Invitational) In July or August. Then after that later in the year (usually around October) we will probably go to cage match. Then we will start our build season all over again in January!

Before then we will for sure have to do a lot of fundraising and team member recruiting as well. If you would like to be one of our sponsors for next year please let us know! Just send an e-mail with any questions to phyxtgears@gmail.com. Also, if you know any high school students from around Muncie/Delaware County who might be interested in joining a FIRST Robotics Challenge Team please let us know and I will do my best to get you the information you need. There are a lot of other things that we do besides building a robot too. We have sub teams for PR, programing, animation, media, and others as well. As we have more kids coming in we will need more adult mentors too! If you think this sounds like something you want in on, again, let us know!

Tonight was also a parent meeting, for them to see how this year went over all and what next year might look like for us. If you are a parent and would like a copy of the notes again let me know and I will send you a .pdf of the notes.

So that’s it for tonight,
Jessica B.
