8742 Argyll Attack FRC trip to world competition

My name is Keith Winchester. I am the father of one of the fantastic kids on this robotics team. I am trying to help them reach their goal of making it to the nationals.
The Madison-Grant High School Robotics Team needs your help! This brand new high school robotics team, FRC #8742 Argyll Attack, has worked very hard this year and has found themselves as a rookie team ranked 30th of 52 teams in the state after participating in their two district competitions! They were awarded the Highest Rookie Seed Award at both of their district events. And at their first event, they also earned the Rookie All-Star Award (the most prestigious award a rookie team can achieve). They've received a lot of support from their school administration, local businesses, and nearby teams and are very thankful for that! Due to their current ranking and achieving the Rookie All-Star Award, they've been invited to the State Championship at Rose-Hulman in one week! They later participated in further interviews for the state level Rookie All-Star Award and, through winning that award, have been invited to attend the World competition in two weeks in Houston, Texas! To say the least, it's been an exciting and successful year for our robotics kids!
Here's why they need your help: They have just over $3,000 left in their robotics account, but registration for both events totals $9,000, and they'll need at least another $5,000-$6,000 for travel and lodging. So please help them overcome the financial challenges they're facing to make it to the state and world championships!

Please be aware that if our goal is not met, any donations will go towards fees and equipment for next year's competition and beyond. This also applies to any over funding for this fundraiser.
