VRC Team Update - March 2012

Congratulations & thank you to all of the VRC Teams!

As the VEX GATEWAY competition season winds down, the Robotics
Education and Competition Foundation would like to thank and
congratulate all of the students, team mentors, parents and
volunteers who made this VRC competition season truly incredible.

Currently, there are over 4,800 registered VEX Robotics teams from 24
different countries and new teams are registering every day. The
2011-2012 VEX Robotics Competition has been truly incredible, but the
excitement is not over yet as we look forward to a few more events
