Thank You Note

Example Thank You Note

Here is the Bot Mitzvahs’ thank you note template, and an example thank you note to Rich Financial Advisors using the template. After template is edited appropriately, print it out and have the whole team sign it. Give it to someone (find out from coaches who) in Gann’s administrative wing, and they will mail it out for the team.

Toolbox List

The toolbox list we used in FTC season 2019 – 2020. This is super helpful in making sure everything that is (or might be) needed at the scrimmage and the competition gets packed in the toolbox.
