Our welcome-back potluck picnic is this Wednesday, August 28, 2019 from 5-7pm in the CC cafeteria. We will have registration forms and information for new and returning members, as well as some time to meet and eat.
Parents are asked and encouraged to attend this event. Team introductions, expectations, and so much information will be covered. Additionally it is a good time for parents to meet and begin volunteering for various events that occur during the season.

Last weekend, 24 members of the CC Shambots did a team bonding activity, an escape room! We had three groups of 8 try 3 different rooms, Cabin in the Woods, St. Agnes’ Asylum, and The Illusionist, and ⅔ of the groups were able to escape! Afterwards, we went to Buddy’s to treat ourselves to some pizza. It was a fun night and one of our Shambots quotes that he “feels more bonded than ever” with his team.
Last Saturday, January 6th, the CC Shambots went to FRC’s Kickoff at Novi High School for FIRST Power Up! We are so excited to begin this build and competition season for Power Up. We are eager to start building and designing a beautiful and effective bot this year. We hope to see all our team members at practices and have a great season!
CC Shambots woke up bright and early on December 9th to do good for others. We went to OLGC (Our Lady of Good Counsel) to help make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bag donuts, and bag bagels for the homeless. From there the group drove down to Detroit to distribute the goods to homeless men, women, and children. At the site these people were able to pick up goods they need such as food, drink, and clothes. It was heartwarming seeing how grateful and happy the people were for the gifts they recieved. We are thankful we had this opportunity to serve, during the snow and all.
Our robotics team knows the importance of giving back to our community. We gathered as a team to make blankets for children who are sick in the hospital. It was an awarding experience and we loved helping othehrs while also getting to bond with our teammates.

Last weekend we competed in our first District Tournament at Woodhaven High School. The CC Shambots won a good amount of matches and the robot functioned well. Our Safety Captain, Grace, also won the “Safety Star of the Day” award. Yay! Even though we are a little sleep deprived, we had fun and are excited for our next tournament, Livonia!
