This is DeVaughn K. Lane, from Brooklyn Tech HS FIRST Team #334.
Next Saturday, April 17th is the FIRST Championship in Atlantic GA!
Our school, in conjunction with the Polybots of Polytechnic University is throwing a NYC FIRST Robotics Celebration.
It is themed " Georgia Peaches and New York Apples" in honor for those teams that could not make it to Nationals this year. We are providing a DJ for the event and also watch Championship competition and cheer our NYC teams. Brooklyn Tech will also supply the apples and peaches!
Location: Polytechnic University, Brooklyn NY
Time: 11am-6 pm
What to bring: Bring food for your self and to shared, team uniforms, and BYOB (Bring Your Own Bots).
Please contact either Ms Sabastin or me to RSVP with how many people you are planning to bring and if you are BYOB.
Contact us if you have any questions or comments. An itinerary will be available shortly upon request.
This year, due to funding challenges and limited slots at the FIRST Championship, only 5 of 26 NYC FIRST teams will be traveling to Atlanta.
A lot of the NYC teams are looking forward to this celebration/party, hopefully it will become an annual event.
Due to problems of an administrative and technical nature, I regret to inform you that the Brooklyn Technical HS/Polytechnic University NYC FIRST! Social, which was scheduled for this Saturday, April 17th has been cancelled.
On behalf of my team and all those involved, we would like to sincerely apologize to all the hard-working teams in NYC who were looking foward to this event.

This sounds like an awesome idea. After all this party is almost like a social at the end of a competition except it brings the teams who did not go to the nationals together to watch it over a broadcast or webcast.
Hopefully next year with some help this will become an official annual event!
Let the FIRST Annual B.A.P.T. 2005 Party begin -------- NEXT YEAR!!!
