FRC Team 2468, Team Appreciate, Earns $100M Over the Weekend!

Oh, sorry, I was typing too fast. A movie Team Appreciate’s robot is in earned $100M over the weekend. Team Appreciate’s cut has not been made public, but let’s just say you can expect to see a substantial increase in their bot bling for the 2015 season.

Their robot from the 2012 season appears in the new Transformers movie*, shooting basketballs. The main character in the film even speaks to it. You can check out more info on Team Appreciate’s Facebook page

Nice work team!

Districts

Many of you have probably already heard, but I’m pleased to announce that the state of Indiana will be joining the ranks of our FRC Districts for the 2015 season. This will be our fifth District, along with Michigan, the Mid Atlantic, New England, and the Pacific Northwest. Indiana is the only District we are adding for the 2015 season.

All teams within the state will automatically become part of the District.
