The 2020 and 2021 Seasons

May 14, 2020 Written by Frank Merrick.



I hope everyone has had a chance to see the updated information we released on the impact to FIRST events from COVID-19.

There is a great deal of information in the update, so I won’t try to summarize it. But I want to acknowledge that while I believe in my heart FIRST HQ made the best possible decisions, even the best possible decisions in this extraordinary situation don’t come without plenty of pain to go around.  

But while there will be pain, we will get through this together. The incredible stories from the last few months have reminded me again of the strength we have in the FIRST community, and I can’t wait to celebrate again in person with you all soon. 

Stay safe, stay well.
