After having our robot stolen at the Smoky Mountains Regional, our team has been blown away by the support of both the FIRST community and the Metro-DC area. Though this was an awful situation, we're now on our way to modify our practice robot to be ready for Worlds in two weeks. We are incredibly grateful for everyone's support.
