TOOLCATS Worlds Championship Trip

I'm Aric Harrier, instructor and coach of the TOOLCATS, the student robotics team from New London-Spicer High School in Minnesota. After 9 years of competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition, we won our regional competition in Duluth, MN and earned our first trip to the World Championship event in April in Detroit, MI.

Through school support as well as student fundraising  efforts, we have already earned enough money to cover our robot materials,  travel to the Duluth regional match, and other miscellaneous costs. However, the trip to Worlds is an unexpected cost above and beyond what we have already raised.

Please help us make this once in a lifetime experience for these deserving students. Some of the newly introduced costs are as follows:

  -- Competition registration $5,000
  -- Bus for travel $6,000
  -- Lodging $4,000
  -- Food $1,500
  -- Van & Trailer $500.

All monies raised will be deposited in the school district's account for the New London-Spicer Educational Foundation (Attn: Jay Gravely who will be handling the funds), which evaluates, approves and pays all verified expenses for the trip.

Thank you to everyone for your generous support!
