Robotics 2017

The thought of being surrounded by 300 teenagers seems daunting, but for us it was another opportunity to welcome some of our favorite guests. During the first weekend in March, nine robotics teams participating in this year’s annual competition at the DECC made the Inn their home base. Some teams were new to us and some were returning, but they all showed a level of respect that went beyond their years.

This year, we wanted to give these great teams an even bigger and better welcome to Duluth by providing a thank you table in our lobby. The students enjoyed complimentary snacks like granola bars and chocolate chip cookies as well as trinkets to get into the spirit of robotics like temporary tattoos and mini foam fingers.

Congratulations to our extra special team, New Apple Corps, who won the 2017 Lake Superior Regional, the Engineering Inspiration Award, and the Double DECCer Championship. We look forward to welcoming Robotics 2018!

With Robotics behind us, we are currently scheming and dreaming special treats for our guests during Easter weekend in April. Make your reservations now for a weekend that will truly be “egg”ceptional!
