Did you see that?
Seems that the Alberta Youth Robotics Society cancelled the Calgary FLL competition run by your FIRST Robotics Society. You probably planned on attending. Well, so did we… and we already booked a GREAT venue, the sound system, volunteers and a whole bunch of FLL tables.
So we figured if we have all this ready, why not compete?
You and your FLL team are hereby invited to participate in the FLL Crown Cup of Canada competition, presented by FIRST Robotics Society of Western Canada and the same incredible volunteers that have made FLL dreams come true for years.
Same place, same time. No need to adjust your calendar, no need to make new field trip forms! Already have a hotel reservation? Keep it! Booked a bus? Yellow or silver, no need for a new map for the driver. Crown Cup of Canada FLL Competition

The DOW Chemical Company and FIRST Robotics have teamed up and are holding a Video Contest for FIRST Robotics teams. There are grants available to be won from this contest for your team so I would recommend checking it out.
On January 2nd, over a dozen FIRST Lego League teams from across Southern Alberta joined us at Telus Spark for the Calgary FLL Championship.
Young robotics students competed in the TRASH TREK robotics challenges, presented their Trash & Recycling projects, and demonstrated excellent Core Values and Gracious Professionalism.
The event was action-packed with loads of excitement and we even had a visit from the local 501st Legion Star Wars Storm Trooper Garrison.
Congratulations to all our teams on their great work, we look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming FIRST Robotics events. A Huge Thank You to all the Volunteers, Mentors, Coaches, Parents, and Students as well as to our Sponsor Telus Spark for helping to make this event a resounding success!
