Sponsor Appreciation Night

It’s amazing how the time flies! Another successful year has passed as the Red Devils look forward to another adventurous year of robotics! Team 1334’s robot, KASSANDRA, did wonderfully this year with the help of the Red Devils’ many generous sponsors and donors. On Thursday, June 5th, 2014, Team 1334 welcomed all of the 2013-2014 season sponsors to a gathering in order to appreciate their support and encouragement throughout this past season of FRC Aerial Assist. Everyone enjoyed many demonstrations and that included last year’s successful robot named JEBIDIAH, an explanation of Team 1334’s Chairman’s Award, and several other awards. We are very grateful for the help and generous donations of all of our sponsors and look forward to another successful year! 

MS Walk

On Sunday May the 4th, the Red Devils participated in the Oakville MS walk. We brought our last year’s robot (JEBIDIAH) along for the 5km walk and the weather was perfect. Our Mayor, Rob Burton, attended the event and we really appreciate his support for the event and our team. We walked in honour of our founding mentor, Mrs. Pat Decker, who was diagnosed with relapsing/remitting Multiple Sclerosis. FIRST team 1334 raised a lot of money which goes towards research in Multiple Sclerosis and we thank everyone who donated for the cause!

Another Awesome St. Louis Championship

The Red Devils once again had a blast in St Louis!  We reconnected with many teams and friends and showed our spirit as we cheered in the stands.  Members of our team attended many conferences where we learned useful skills and spoke with companies and teams gathering new ideas and making new connections.  The FIRST championships were once again a great success and team 1334 was honoured to have been able to be a part of it once more.  The Red Devils would also like to congratulate teams 469, 2848, 254, and 74 for becoming this year’s world champions and team 27 for winning Chairman’s!  Thanks to all the volunteers who helped make this event as awesome as it was and to our sponsors and school administration for all their support!
