Pine Tree Regional Information and Forms -
Please pass in the following forms by Monday.
FIRST Consent and Release Form - If you did not complete the STIMS online form
Tuesday 3/19 Update – No school today – But ROBO all day – come to plimpton and help us get ready for Boston. We will be making parts for the finished robot, working on the climber [the plywood climber worked last night], and testing the new shooter. Also lots of driving and maybe some packing.
Happy St. Patty’s Day! Although we feel we have the luck of the Irish, we still need your help to complete our robot by this Wednesday. We are at Plimpton today and if you can spare two hours, please come on down and lend a hand. As well, we will need you to find as much time as you can on Monday and Tuesday in order to get our robot complete by Wednesday afternoon and be packed up and ready to go.
Yes, we are still meeting during vacation – we still have many projects to wrap-up before we leave for Manchester next week. Plimpton will be open daily from 9 am until 3 pm (or later). Please make every effort to make it in if you are available! Testing, troubleshooting, driving, organizing… who could ask for anything more during vacation!?
Week Zero Updates
We will be uploading videos to our YouTube channel, “1153roborebels” and provide links in the ‘Team Blogs’ section as we test our prototype robot during the games today. Please stay tuned…

More Paperwork =(
We are still in need of ALL FRC paperwork for the Granite State Regional to be completed by everyone except the O’learys! Please make sure that you check the ‘Parents’ section, download and fill out all 4 permission slips (YES, There is currently 4 forms to be filled out; BAE systems threw one in too!) if you want to go to the Granite State Regional. Also, if you have not gotten the money in for the competition, this must be sent in ASAP.
All FRC and FTC members also need to put in a RoboWear order form, even if you are only getting the free t-shirt. In order to get this order out on time for the competitions, we need all order forms in by Monday, 2/11/13.
ATTENTION FTC – Competition this Weekend!
It’s finally here… Our first ‘FIRST’ event ever, being held at Middlesex Community College in Bedford, MA on Saturday 1/19. I have pre-ordered pizza for our teams, but there will be snacks and drinks for sale at the event – so be sure to bring a few bucks cash! I’d like to have a quick parents meeting to answer your questions this Wednesday, 1/16 at 7 pm in my computer lab (room 2302 of the HS). Email or call if you’re not able to attend but have questions or concerns. See you all on Wednesday evening!
AFC CHAMPIONSHIP TICKETS!!! – Big Raffle Fundraiser!
That’s right – we got our hands on a pair of fantastic tickets for the upcoming Pats VS Ravens game on Sunday night (thank you MG)! We should ALL be selling at least 10 raffle tickets for $20 each. This is an easy sell – a modest donation for a huge potential reward! Friends and family can’t say no to this fundraiser, so get on the horn and send the mass emails. We’ve cleared over $4000 on similar fundraisers in the past… that’s big money and we need it right now! The bills are adding up… All tickets need to be back to Mr. Hinck or Mr. Scott by Saturday at 5:00 PM for the drawing. See the parents page to print more tickets.
