Important Samantha Module Update

Dear Teams,

Since the beginning, FTC has experienced huge, year-over-year team growth.  This year is no exception.  You have been an integral part in helping us achieve 40% growth over last season.  Thank you!

With this growth comes new and exciting challenges.  Currently our challenge is to ensure that every newly-registered team can get a Samantha Module.  To accomplish this, we need your support and understanding. 

Beginning today, veteran FTC teams won’t be able to purchase new Samantha Modules for the remainder of the 2013-14 season.  This will ensure we have enough modules to support all new Rookie teams and the needs of our tournament organizers. 

“But what if my Samantha Module is broken?”

That’s a great question!  If you think your Samantha Module is broken, please send us an e-mail at and we’ll help troubleshoot any issues you might be having.  If we determine the module is broken, we’ll ask you to send it to us at FIRST and we’ll authorize your Team to buy an additional module.

Thank you for your help and understanding as we go through this period of tremendous growth!

Go Teams!
