The Sharon Eagle Robotics Unlimited team (FVC 13) has been working to promote the new FIRST Vex Challenge (now in it's pilot season).  We have been at each Massachusetts FLL tournament in order to discuss the FVC, and let the teams try out Vex robots configured for 2 on 2 Robotic Soccer.  We would like to acknowledge the participation of the Sharon Eagle Robotics AngelBots team at the Blackstone tournament.

Eventually, every FLL team will "age out" of competition, and many (most?) will attend high schools with no FRC program.  While it would be great to form an FRC team at each of these high schools, practical barriers exist.  The FVC program offers the opportunity to keep these teams together!
