C'mon baby, do the Logomotion!

January 10, 2011

We'd like to thank the friends, family, and other supporters who came out last night to join our team for our annual Kickoff pasta dinner. Though our dinner and small raffles have come and passed, we are still running our Gigantic Gargantuan Raffle. The grand prize being a 4 pack of day-hopper passes good for any Disney theme park (a $500 value), the second prize a $200 gift card to Best Buy, and third prize of a $100 gift card to Borders. The raffle will end on February 22nd, and there is a 250 ticket cap on the sale of tickets, so act fast! And remember, if you donate $10 on the PayPal feature on our website, we will send you your ticket number via email.

This past Saturday, the new FRC game was announced. We were lucky enough to have GUS represented by a few team members, and our own Tina Dutra was featured in a New Hampshire news article. This years game is called Logomotion, and involves inflatable aspects of the FIRST symbol as game pieces (which explains Game Hint #2). Needless to say, GUS is hard at work prototyping and building in order to meet the 6 week deadline. Sleepless nights are here again!
