Founded in 1996, FIRST Robotics Competition Team 111, WildStang celebrates their 25th Season. 

2020 is the 25th anniversary of the WildStang Robotics Team and we are planning a reunion celebration during the FIRST Robotics Competition Midwest Regional in March, 2020.

There are several goals we are trying to achieve.

We need your contact information. There is a WildStang Reunion tab on the wildstang.org website to gather as many names, addresses, emails and phone numbers as possible about anyone that ever was associated with the team. We would like you to contact all the people that you have kept up with over the years that were on WildStang and ask them to check out the website and fill out the contact information as well. That way, everyone will be kept in the loop as plans develop

We would like to get a large number of people who were ever associated with WildStang to volunteer at the Midwest Regional. The dates for the Midwest Regional, at the Credit Union 1 Arena, are March 5, 6, 7, 2020. It would be cool if 30-40 people formerly with the team volunteered at the event. It would show WildStang’s ongoing commitment to FIRST and it would be fun to reconnect with all of you. Information for volunteering for FIRST and the Midwest Regional will be out in October/November.

There will be a gathering for all students, mentors, teachers and others with prior experience with WildStang during the weekend, time and place to be determined. Sorry, but current students can catch the next reunion. If you can’t volunteer at the Midwest Regional, but can attend a reception for the team, we want you! Fill out the contact form on the website so you receive updates as plans progress.

We would like to fundraise $25,000 for the team on its 25th anniversary. If you cannot attend the reunion event, but would like to donate to the team, there is an opportunity for that on the reunion tab on the website. The WildStang Robotics Support Association is a 501c(3) registered non-profit organization giving you the ability to deduct your donation, if that possibility applies to you. 

As the team enters build and competition season, we’ll have the team 25th season commemorative t-shirts, as well as other limited edition 25th Season items available through the WildStang website. In the meantime, head over to the WildStang Store and order other Wildstang Gear. All profits from the store go directly to the team. 

If you have old pictures you would like to share from your years on the team, follow the link on Reunion tab and upload your favorite pictures. Please provide year, names, description, etc.

If you have questions, ideas, etc., contact the committee by sending an email to alumni@wildstang.org. We are excited for the coming year and we hope to reconnect with many of you.

Sincerely,
The Reunion Committee
