Duel on the Delaware 2018

The duel on Delaware was an off season fall event where most new and old MOE members participated in. MOE was the host of the event along with our sister group team 316 “LunaTECHS”. It was a long busy day from the practice rounds all the way through the qualifying rounds. Although it was a packed day, the energy never faded in all teams. There were several dance breaks and friendly bonding with fellow teams. MOE 365 was praised for our high spirits though we had a lot on our shoulders. In the end we reached the finals and were able to place in 5th, go MOE!

$20 For 365

As our 20th Anniversary is coming up, we’re encouraging our alumni and anyone else who wants to help out to donate about $20 or more for this year’s team expenses! You may think that $20 isn’t much, but that can help our students pay off their travel expenses or even get a meal plan for the build season. We’d all very much appreciate any donation we can get.  You can learn more and donate here!
