Idaho FIRST Robotics Competition 2016

Dear Idaho FIRST Robotics VIPs:

First… thank you again for attending our VIP event at the Inaugural FIRST Idaho Robotics Regional Competition! What a great event this competition was! It was great to see the enthusiasm generated in both the Education and Business community. We are in the process of scheduling next year’s event – and you can bet that we will let you know when it is!

I wanted to include a few links to the Idaho event, so that you can remember how much fun it was… and I also wanted to give you an update on the FIRST World Competition, which starts tomorrow.
