Good Evening Chief Delphi. I have some news that I regret having to report on behalf of my former team.
Team 216, 244, and 288 the RoboDawGs of Grandville Michigan have had one of their trucks and trailers stolen out of the hotel parking lot this afternoon.
The Truck is a 2005 Chevy Silverado crew cab [diesel] that is Red in colour. It has a RoboDawG decal on the back window. The Trailer is black that says “AB Rental” along the bottom. License plates on the truck and trailer are both Michigan License plates.
Inside the Trailer, we have 50 or so kid’s worth of luggage, some robot bits and the official drive stations. We were in [Oshawa] Toronto when it got stolen at about 4:30 local time.
The local police have been notified about the Truck and Trailer being stolen, but if anyone in the area could keep an eye out and contact me about any information, that would be wonderful. My Father appreciates it, as well as the teams.
My Email to contact me at would be email@example.com , a personal message on Chief Delphi would work as well, but may not be checked as soon.
On behalf of Grandville’s teams, we thank you for being a wonderful community that can have each other’s backs in time of need, and look forward to finding the truck and trailer.
No, our 3 robots were in another trailer on another truck, as well as all 3 pit sets I believe. Its awful that someone would do this, but I hope that making people aware of the situation may lend a hand in finding them.
I just want to send a huge thank you to everybody has helped us, and I would like to relieve you. While the truck and trailer are still not found, I received word just a few minutes ago that a team stepped up and donated everything that we need to compete. Computers, driver stations, parts, tools, etc. Thank you all for your huge support, and what a great showing of gracious professionalism!
Yes, and thank you so much for the link! I agree, whomever finds it alright to steal, let alone from a high school robotics team, needs a lesson. As horrible as this all is, we hope to perform our best at one of our favourite competitions.
Also, Suj, I am not sure which part of Oshawa they are in. Thank you so much for forwarding the message!
