The outlook for our 2014 season was looking bleak after graduating five talented seniors and two underclassmen not returning. Nearly 50% of our team of 13 was now gone! Imagine our surprise when we had a roomful of people show up for our 2013-2104 Information Night on August 1. Interested students and their parents were able to watch our 2013 Chairman’s Video and our season highlights video. Afterwards, we broke into two groups. The students (and some of the parents) were given a tour of our build facilities and introduced to our last two robots- Wilson and Sherman. Meanwhile the remaining parents listened to a talk about our team, our season schedule, and financial commitments. Afterwards, all joined back together for snacks and drinks.
It was a successful evening and we look forward to seeing many of these people join Up Next this season.
