The Aluminum Falcons hoster the inaugural Groton District Event on March 8 and 9. To host this event the team had to put in countless hours of logistical planning for pit structure, hallway movement, and the competition field. Head Coach Mr. Chidley had to put in a lot of time making sure that the event would meet safety regulations. The marketing team worked to get guest speakers such as U.S. Representative Joe Courtney. The entire team also helped preparing concessions for the two day event. The night before the competition the Aluminum Falcons along with FIRST Volunteers set up the competition field and pit areas. At the competition the team fared well, placing seventh and winning the Creativity Award. At the end of the competition the Falcons stayed late to break down the set up as there was school the next day. It took a lot of work to pull it off, but it was a huge achievement for everyone involved. The team had a great time and looks forward to having the opportunity to host more events in the future.
