Hello Teams,

Topics covered in this email are:

1. FTC Florida Coach of the Year Award
2. Tampa Bay Renaissance Festival

1. FTC Florida Coach of the Year Award
We are introducing a Coach of the Year award at this year's FTC Florida State Championship. ALL coaches of FTC teams in Florida are eligible for nomination for this award. It is NOT just for teams participating in the State Championship. Each team may nominate one coach from their team by submitting one (1) essay nominating one (1) coach. The essay should be two pages or less, 12 pt font, and 1" margins (sides, top and bottom).

The deadline for submitting nomination essays is February 19, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Email the nomination essays to: Pete Grotsky at

2. Tampa Bay Renaissance Festival
The Tampa Bay Renaissance Festival invited FTC teams to participate as guest inventors during their Italian Carnivale weekend. This year's theme is DaVinci Inventions. The festival is February 20th & 21st. See the attached document for additional information. Please direct questions to Tim Liss at

Team Duct Tape had a very good time at the festival last year and they offered the following advice. . . . [Teams] might *not* want to bring their robot to the fair. We didn't mind last year, because it was after the championship. We covered all critical parts in Press n Seal plastic, but everything got filthy anyway. It's really, really dusty there. Not a problem off season, but certainly something you don't want before a major competition!
