On Monday, FRC Team 3313 Mechatronics met with smiles still plastered on their faces but knew it was time to get down to business. We brought out our giant crate from the corner of our robot room and painted it. It has been gathering dust for who knows how long. It originally came from our team's first year, 2011, before the "Bag and Tag" rules.
We enlisted the help of some art students at our school to spray paint it. It turned out really nice! We loved the planets and space theme. Lots of team spirit on it as well.
You can see a full photo album of it here.
The reason we even needed the crate was to ship our robot to St. Louis. Teams are required to ship their robot by the Thursday after their last event. It was sad but we said goodbye to Thor on Thursday. It's kind of surreal that this whole FIRST Championships thing is even happening. We keep pinching each other but we are confident that it's real. Haha.
We have started our journey on the long road of fundraising. We are bagged groceries at Eldens again yesterday! We raised over $1000!!! WOW! We also hope to talk to organizations in Alexandria for assistance. The school is going to help as well.
We posted a donation site on Piggybackr, here is the link if you would like to donate. It would be greatly appreciated!
The support from the Alexandria community has been INCREDIBLE. From parents of team members to local companies to sponsors to the superintendent to the mayor to our school and classmates, so many people have given us congratulations and donations. It's all a little overwhelming and humbling but we are so appreciative. Words cannot describe how supportive Alexandria has been and how thankful we are.
We are also thankful for all the amazing tweets, facebook posts, tumblr replys, and emails from other FRC teams and friends and family. We love the FIRST Robotics community and how prevalent coopertition can be.
