The San Diego Regional

posted Mar 11, 2014, 5:14 PM by Iron Kodiaks
After three fantastic days at the SD Regional Competition, the Iron Kodiaks have been awarded the Rookie All-Star Award!

Receiving this great honor makes our team eligible for the FRC National Championship in St Louis, Missouri, from April 24th to 26th. In being invited to the event, we have made ourselves stand out among many worthy first-year teams. The humbling award came as a surprise to many of us, as we ranked 23rd of 60 teams at the regional, and were the third-seeded rookie team out of seven.

Any of the team members would certainly agree that this experience was unlike any they've ever had, and we would therefore like for everybody to attend.

As of today - Tuesday the 11th - the team has registered for the event and has prepared to launch a large fundraising campaign in which every team member has their own donations webpage and every team member is involved in running fundraising events. To meet our budgetary goal, the Iron Kodiaks will reach out to numerous potential sponsors, from local restaurants to worldwide businesses.

We would like to thank everybody who has helped the team to get where they are now. We are excited and eager to face this challenge, and hope that we can count on our supporters to help us through it.
