Duel On The Delaware took place on October 19th, 2019. Here are the highlights from the event:
The Duel On The Delaware Snapchat filter was viewed over 1,500 times! We also had an all new competition team, and our team was the first pick of the #3 alliance.
Miss Delaware (Hillary May) was present, announced a match, and presented the book drive awards. We had a successful book drive, participation from 30 teams from five states, and 110+ volunteers! Additionally, we had five teams participate in the mock chairman’s award – a record amount! Congratulations to the Duel Master Volunteer Winner – Kevin McKay!
Last, but not least, one highlight from this event was the Woodie Flowers tribute. Rest In Peace, Woodie!
Thank you to everyone who helped make Duel on the Delaware a success!
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!
Ken Chisholm, a broadcaster from Radio Newark, came to visit MOE’s Lab last week. With Radio Newark being a STEM based broadcasting station, he came in to find out more about MOE and FIRST and to even do future podcasts with us!
