The LibraryBots FTC Team 7278 is hosting a FIRST Tech Challenge "Scrimmage at the Library" Sat. Nov 23, 2019.
At last Saturday's Blacksburg Town Hall meeting, FIRST Chesapeake was asked if they could help facilitate communications between teams in the DC, Maryland, Virginia areas. Since we cannot share team contact information that has been provided through FIRST Headquarters, we proposed that interested teams create a basic team gmail address that can be posted under a team info tab on our website. Teams would be listed by geographic location, as well as program. (Other information such as website and social media will also be included). It is our hope that this directory will encourage teams to connect with each other on a local level.
If you are interested in registering your team, please complete this form.
FIRST Tech Challenge Team 3804 in Richmond, VA inadvertently ordered a partial (red) field from AndyMark. They would like to sell it for $150 (local pick-up only- no shipping) - no blocks or building platform included.

We really enjoyed meeting with everyone at the Blacksburg Town Hall. A special thanks to Blacksburg High School for hosting and Michael Collver, our most excellent moderator.
The last 2 Town Halls will be coming up in October. If you are interested in attending, please be sure to fill out the RSVP form so we will know how many to expect. This form will also help us tailor the discussion to each Town Hall.
The Peninsula STEM Gym in Newport News, VA has Skystone game elements, and has generously offered to allow teams to practice on their official playing field.
