2016 Duel on the Delaware champions

Three high school teams formed the winning alliance at Saturday’s 2016 Duel on the Delaware–from Philadelphia, FRC 341 MissDaisy, from Downingtown FRC 1640 Sa-BOT-age, and from South Jersey, FRC 5420 Velocity.  

The annual “off season” event, held at Salem Community College in Carneys Point, NJ, is cosponsored by southern NJ team 316, the Lu-na-tecs, and FSR team, MOE365, the Miracle Workerz.

In addition, teams collect and donate books for Success Won’t Wait– a Wilmington-based charity that distributes books to children’s charities, hospitals, and other organizations serving people in the tri-state area. Top winners receive a trophy  for the most books (by weight). The event total this year was over 11,500 pounds of books and the 2016 book drive winner was Team 271, the Mechanical Marauders from Bay Shore, NY.

A big thanks to all our event volunteers and sponsors!
