Happy Valentine’s Day FIRST Tech Challenge community! Here’s the v-day edition of the Team Blast:

Contents:
1. New High Score of 504 set by FTC Teams 3539 and 4486 at the NJ Garden State Rumble FTC Championship Tournament!
2. New PTC and NI webinars - Come join PTC and National Instruments every Thursday night from 7-9 PM (EST) to talk about FIRST Robotics, answer questions and learn new information about programming, controls, kinematics, data management, etc. Go to www.ptc.com/go/firstrobotalk to register and submit questions that will be addressed in the next webinar.
3. Install your programming templates - Reports from event organizers show that the biggest hold up at software inspection is teams not having the required templates installed on their NXTs!
a. ROBOTC users, follow these steps: Open Sample Programs-> FIRST Tech Challenge -> Autonomous Template -> Insert autonomous program into the template.
