Team 79 Students and Parents:
Welcome to the 2017-2018 FIRST® Team 79 Krunch Robotics season! I hope everyone had a smooth start to the new school year.
Here is the new team membership package for your review. All returning team members must complete the registration process. Please be sure to read all of the material contained in the packet as some of the information has changed since last season. The membership fee is $150 per student and payment is to be made out to East Lake High School. All registration forms are to be printed, filled out, and returned to me at the school in room # 9113 prior to Thursday, August 31st. Please ensure that all information is completed and that your membership dues are attached to the forms before you hand them in. The rest of the packet is yours to keep for reference (do not return the entire packet). Applications not received by the deadline or turned in with incomplete and/or missing forms will not be accepted, and your name will be removed from the e-mail distribution list.
Please keep in mind that there will be a cut-off for membership and we will only accept 40 students. New membership will be opened to the school starting tomorrow.
A mandatory orientation meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 29th at 7:00pm in the media center. This is for returning members, as well. At least one parent/guardian must attend with their student.
Preseason meetings will begin Tuesday, September 5th at 2:00pm in the engineering lab. Preseason meetings will run weekly on Tuesdays from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.
Instructions on how to register online with FIRST will be sent out in September. All team members are encouraged to attend Roboticon, which will be held at the University of South Florida's Sun Dome On October 7th and 8th. More details about this event will follow.
If you have any questions, please ask.
