I wanted to start by updating every one of our performances in Skills USA and First Robotics. First, congratulations to the students who will compete at the National Skills USA Conference in Louisville, Kentucky from June 25 – 30. All of these students received either gold, silver, or bronze medals at our state competition:

Over 400 teams were invited to compete at First Robotics World Championships in Detroit, MI. Tri-Force competed in the Daly division against 68 teams from all over the world. After 2 days of intense competition, major work, and several design changes to our robot during competition, we ended up 30th in our division. Congratulations, to advisors, Mike Garland and Tom Vagnini, as well all the students that participated.
As we approach the end of the year we want everyone to be aware of these important dates:
