1. New Florida FTC Leadership Team

FIRST approved an all-star team of experienced FIRST volunteers to run the Florida FTC program for the 2014-15 season.  Starting today, please direct all of your Florida FTC correspondence to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


The new FTC Partner for Florida is Hans Wolf.  He is leading a committee of volunteers that will run the Florida FTC program.  I have worked closely with Hans and the members of the new leadership team for many years.  They all have extensive experience volunteering for the Florida FTC program and I am confident that they will do a fantastic job.  I will leave it to Hans to announce the members of the leadership committee.


I have relinquished all of my state level responsibilities to Hans and the leadership committee.  However, I will continue to be an active contributor to the FTC community.  I plan on being an event day volunteer and I will continue to serve on the FTC Game Design Committee.  I am looking forward to seeing my FIRST friends at many events this season.



2. FTC Season Kickoff

The FTC Season kickoff will be held at Middleton Magnet High School in Tampa on Saturday, September 6, 2014.  Workshops will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the auditorium and the game reveal will be at noon.  Teams will have an opportunity to explore an official playing field and participate in a Q&A session following the game reveal.  Middleton Magnet High School is located at 4801 N. 22nd Street, Tampa, FL  33619.  There is no charge to attend the season kickoff and it is open to the public.


Additional information will be published in a team email blast and on the website when the details have been finalized.


That's all for now.


Take care,


Michael Coleman
