Whoo! First Meeting of the New School Year

This past Friday our team held our first meeting of the new school year. It was rather exciting and nerve-wracking to say the least. Over the summer many events occurred for our team.

As many have probably heard, Mr. Jeremy Bydlon, our former head coach of FRC Team 3313 Mechatronics resigned. A small town like Alexandria just didn't seem to suit him, so he moved closer to the Twin Cities to be near family again.

Which leads to our next announcment, due to Mr. Bydlon's resignation, we have canceled our offseason event for this year, but no worries! We will work towards hosting one next year.

This was one of the topics we discussed at our meeting, along with introducing ourselves and getting to know our new head coach, Mr. Aaron Rye. He is a math teacher and a robotics intructor at our school and we are proud to welcome him to the team--it's going to be an awesome year. I would just like to say our plan of implimenting a robotics class within our high school was successful. It was only achieveable though our team's effort, our prinipal, Mr. Chad Duwenhoegger, and many of our sponsors.

In addition, we have set in motion many new fundraisers for this year. We will keep everyone updated!

Although this past year, many of our wonderful seniors graduated; however, many have come back as alumni mentors, and we just want them to know that they've provided extra stability for our team and welcome them back!

We're wishing everyone a wonderful new school year and we have our fingers crossed for a release of a  water-game this FIRSTmas!
