Hillsboro Mayor Willey & Glencoe 4488
The Bag and Tag ceremony held on February 19th signifies the end of the build season. Each FIRST robotics team is required to stop all building operations and pack their robot away for the competition. The team is not allowed to further improve the robot to benefit them during the FIRST competition. To celebrate this milestone, Shockwave held a public celebration that included Hillsboro Mayor Jerry Willie, Washington County Commission Chair Andy Duyck, Intel Corporate Affairs Manager Jill Eiland, and 4 of Hillsboro's 6 school board members. Shockwave's celebration included an exposition of our FRC robots and FTC and FLL demonstrations from local FIRST teams.
