Greetings Florida FTC Teams, Volunteers, and Sponsors:

Please Read this update carefully and completely!

It has been over a week since my last Florida FTC email newsletter and a lot has happen since then. The Relic Recovery game has been released and we have been dealing with hurricane Irma. I hope that everyone is safe and back in your house.  Given the number of people in Florida that are still without power, I am assuming that some of you still might not be back to your regular routine. I hope the recovery process in your area happens quickly and please let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

In the coming days, I will be sending out additional information to help you prepare for the FTC season. In today’s email, I am going to tell you about two grant opportunities that are available to teams in Florida. The following are the grant opportunities I have included in this email:

1.            Hurricane Irma Rookie Team Grants

2.            Florida FTC Rockwell Collins Grants

Greetings Florida FTC Teams, Volunteers, and Sponsors:

I believe that many of Florida county school systems have returned back to school and it shows in our team registration numbers.  We currently have 62 registered FTC teams in Florida and our league volunteers are making great progress on identifying event locations and dates. As a reminder to everyone, you can always go to the following web page to see all of the scheduled events that we have across Florida: http://ftc.flfirst.org/index.php/season/events. We currently have four kick-off events scheduled and the primary purpose of this email it provide more details about the planned activities at each of the locations.  In the coming weeks, I do expect to see a number of league events to get posted on the www.flfirst.org event registration system.

The main focus of our first newsletter of the season is about the four kick-off events being held in Florida. However, I do have a several other important topics to help you prepare for this upcoming season.  Please share this information with your team members, parents, and mentors.
