Rescue our Robotics Team after the Robbery!
(click for larger image)
On Saturday March 7th after the Utah Regional FIRST competition, the bus we shared with Team Kraken was robbed while parked at a restaurant in Salt Lake City. All of Blitz’s computers, our controllers, all of our batteries and chargers, our marketing materials and our electronics parts were stolen, as well as two bags of personal luggage belonging to Blitz students and five bags of Kraken luggage.
We are working quickly to try to catch the thief (see the silver SUV/wagon in these photos), and also to replace what gear we can in time for Denver Regional competitions on March 20th, but not having our computers and equipment is making it very hard to work on improving our robot in time.
If you would like to donate to our team to help us re-equip and hopefully be able to compete in Denver, we would greatly appreciate it. The only way we can accept donations is through our school district’s official donations platform, via the green button below.
