Welcome our new President, Larry Cohen! FIRST Robotics Competition

Yesterday, FIRST announced we have selected a new president, Larry Cohen. We will certainly miss Don Bossi, and we thank him for all the hard work he has done growing FIRST and setting us up for the brightest possible future. We’re looking for great things to continue under our new president! Welcome aboard, Larry!


Q&A Closing

Questions being submitted to the official Q&A system in response to our latest pre-season rules release have slowed lately. Our plan is to close the Q&A system at Noon Eastern Time on Thursday, December 5, barring any additional questions that would result in another team update. If you have questions, please get them in now!
