Message to Teams: Sept. 18, 2011

Dear Teams,

Note: this is going out only to teams that have registered so far and not to my general mailing list, though I will post this on the blog. Make sure to update the coach/contact information for your team if that information changes so they are in the loop. Forward this email to anyone else who needs it.

Primary: Next Saturday Sept. 24 at NYU/Poly in downtown Brooklyn (same location as Brooklyn Tournament) from 10-3 is our annual kickoff where the Food Factor challenge will be explained and you can ask questions and see demos. I will post more details on the blog as they come in. The event will start in Pfizer Auditorium at 10 with follow-ups in the Jacobs Building.

So far we have 144 teams registered with a few weeks left. So we should be having another robust year. Registration closes at the end of September or if they run out of field set up kits. If you still want to register more teams note that you do not have to order extra field set up kits as long as you have one.

As you know from my last update I have been out of the loop for the past 2 months but I am trying to catch up. (If you sent an email or called and did not get a response try again.)

I am updating the FLL blog as info comes in with links on the side panel on the right hand side. Check that first and contsct me for more info in needed.

It is best to contact me by Email:
But if you have specific questions call 917-992-3734 -

Here are some other reminders:
