Rockford Robotics hosted the three 2017 FIRST Tech Challenge meets for the Northern Illinois League West.
This included locating sites, recruiting volunteers, field set up and tear down, and general event management.
Our team members served as score keepers, robot inspectors, referees, queuers, and field reset. A special shout-out to our lead mentor, Eric Williams for doing the yeoman’s work in organizing and running these events.
Eight local middle and high school teams are members of the Northern Illinois League West. They will all participate in the Northern League Qualifier at McHenry County College on February 11. Alliance and award winners at this event will compete at the Illinois State Championship on February 24.
