Just a quick note thanking the NYC crew for a great FTC Championship. I know I have not posted much from specific events this season - they've all been great - but this one was probably the largest.
72 teams, 2 divisions, and teams from as far away as Jamaica. Dean joined the competition with Jon Dudas too.
Special thanks to Len Rerek and the wonderful group of volunteers and sponsors. Pat Daly does a great job pulling together volunteers and sponsors for all of FIRST too. Doesn't hurt to have volunteers from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New Hampshire, and Connecticut pitching in!
