  • EliseCH: CHANGE OF PLANS!!!! Robitocon packing will be from 5:00-6:30pm tonight ONLY.  That will be the only time the build space will be open.  If you can come help, much appreciated!!!  Sorry for the late notice, several of us had tickets to jgodwin's performance in Footloose this weekend, which has been changed to a one night only tonight event.
    October 05, 2016, 02:33:37 PM
  • EliseCH: The build space will be open tonight as we pack for Roboticon, with the greatest hope that none of our families are affected and we get to enjoy the clear weather and lots of fun robot matches this weekend.  If your family is prepping for the storm or you do not feel comfortable coming out in the traffic tonight do NOT come to build.  If you are able to make it, we appreciate the help packing.  Zach and I are planning to try and get everything packed in our two cars to keep things as simple as possible.  Be safe Bacon!

  • EliseCH: Thank you all for your well thought out discussion for our 2017 Season competitions. I was so impressed by the points brought up by both veteran and new students. While there are many places I would love to go to compete, it won't matter where we go as long as I am there with you all! I look forward to every step of the way to and through our 2017 season with you!

There's 104 days of summer vacation

And school comes along just to end it

So the annual problem for our generation

Is finding a good way to spend it



Like maybe...

Building a rocket

Or fighting a mummy

Or climbing up the Eiffel Tower



Discovering something that doesn't exist (Hey! )

Or giving a monkey a shower



Surfing tidal waves

Creating nanobots

Or locating Frankenstein's brain (It's over here! )



Finding a dodo bird

Painting a continent

Or driving your sister insane (Phineas! )



As you can see

There's a whole lot of stuff to do

Before school starts this fall (Come on Perry)



So stick with us 'cause Phineas and Ferb

Are gonna do it all

So stick with us 'cause Phineas and Ferb are

Gonna do it all!

(Mom! Phineas and Ferb are making a title sequence! )
