THOR competition trip cancelled

From Mr. Sullivan:

Hello robot team.

I have talked with several of our team members about our planned trip to North Carolina this weekend for the FRC competition. We have decided to NOT participate in that competition. Some of our planning for that event has not been finalized due to some events last week and we wont be able to finish those plans due to school and team meeting cancellations this week due to the record flooding that has occurred this week. We are not prepared for the trip. Instead of trying to force our participation we have decided to not attend.

Please make sure team members you talk with know about this cancellation so everyone gets the word.

Many people in our community are working to start the recovery process from the major flooding that has occurred throughout our community. Consider spending time this weekend helping someone in need with their recovery efforts. That would be a rewarding and appreciated way to spend part of your weekend.

We will still be participating in the FRC competition on October 24. So we will still have the opportunity to practice for and participate in that event.

Our next team meeting will be on Tuesday, October 13. See everyone then.
