GENERAL CLUB INFO

Note From Kelvin:

Hello everyone, the first FTC scrimmage is coming up in less than 2 weeks. For some of our new members, this will be your first FTC competition you’ll ever go to. Please remember to sign up for the scrimmage with this link: FTC SCRIMMAGE SIGN UP as soon as possible before Oct.31 so that we can organize the carpool from TSL to the event location. Those who sign up first will be given carpool priority if we do not have enough parent volunteer carpool drivers.

Also for those of you who have not already signed the FIRST consent form that we sent out a month ago and have constantly been reminding you about, please sign it so that you are able to attend the scrimmage. The FIRST consent form should have been sent out in an email about a month ago. If you have already signed the consent form, I really appreciate it and ignore the previous two sentences.

I’m looking for a couple volunteers to help the mentor the Lincoln FLL team on Mondays from 4-5. Last year some members of 731 mentored the Lincoln FLL team, but this year we are opening it up to the rest of the club. It’s a really good outreach opportunity that you can put in your engineering notebook. Let me know if you are interested.

We are looking for some volunteers to help represent ECG Robotics at the ECG game show night and host some games. This event will be on November 16th, but let me know before this Friday so that the people organizing the game night have enough time. Some more information about this is on Slack. Please let your team captains or myself know if you are interested.

MARKETING

Banner and flyer deadlines are coming up soon in December, so I encourage all team captains to talk to their members about who wants to be on marketing duty – although we encourage all members to take part in this content. Captains are to provide me (Sreya) with a list of marketing liaisons from their respective teams.
