From Andy Schaafs: 
This weekend (2/11/2023) the robotics community had a historical moment, the first ever UIL Robotics State Championship - RECF. It was a true testament of what the competition can do for all Texas schools with representation from every UIL Division, 1A through 6A. Just in this first year, the top 84 Texas teams were in attendance, with many more hoping to qualify in future years (970 total registered high school teams in Texas). 

More importantly, thank YOU for advocating for these teams. Bill, the time you took out of your life to speak to the UIL Legislative Council on behalf of these students is priceless. This last Saturday reminded me of why we do what we do.
