Reflections For This Meeting: 

The best part was getting all the FLL kids excited about FIRST Tech Challenge!!!

Our entire team worked very hard to organize, set up and run the first ever Granite Bay FLL Tournament. We worked hard and had a great time -and all of the FLL teams and family/friends had a great time too.

We introduced a lot of young FLL members to FTC today - which was a blast too.

The great sign that our assistant coach made for the entrance.

We got to the gym early to set up all the sound equipment and tournament stuff.

There were 12 FLL teams at our tournament - and we set up 2 competition tables and sound equipment.

We had a FIRST table - with fliers and information on FIRST and FLL and FTC available.

The opening ceremony with all the teams ready for the day.

Karl was emcee, Gavin and Chris did robot inspections and queing, and I did score keeping during the table runs.

Karl taking a break from emceeing as I go over some table run scores in the computer.

Chris had fun getting the teams pumped up at the queing before their table runs.

Gavin was also in charge of rules at the table runs and helped out our 2 referees.

Gavin really knows his rules!

Down to the last few matches - it got really wild and everyone was excited!

While waiting for the judges to convene, we brought out Alice for all the particpants to see and talked about FTC. THere were a lot of FLL team members asking questions and excited about doing FTC next year!

The FLL kids really liked Alice and aske a lot of questions! She handed out Techno Guard buttons to the different team members.
