Overall we had a great time in the shop tonight and we can’t wait for build season! #halloweenantics #teambonding

Team 5980 had a fabulous time at the East Grand Rapids 4th of July parade! We drove Louie, this year's robot, shot balls, threw candy and popsicles, decorated the scissor lift of our rookie year robot, and showed off our banners and signs. Thanks to the EGR community for being so supportive and enthusiastic! We are proud to represent this very special community. 😃
