FIRST Robotics Competition

You are INVITED to the inaugural Pioneer Valley District FIRST Robotics Competition on Friday and Saturday, Mar 6 and 7 at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield. 

We will be hosting 35 high school teams (out of 175) from around New England competing with and against each other to earn a spot in the NE District Championship at WPI in April then to qualify to go onto the World Championships in St. Louis!

Recycle Rush is the name of the design challenge this year where alliances of three 120 pound robots, designed and built by high schools with the help of engineers from their sponsoring companies, stack 'crates', 'recycling barrels' and pick up 'litter' to score points and potentially move on to the next level.

Doors open each day at 8:00 am. For more information, go to www.nefirst.org and click on Springfield Event.

Kansas

with Blue Oyster Cult

Kansas with Blue Oyster Cult are bringing back classic rock to Springfield when they play the MassMutual Center Exhall, Friday, May 29th. Kansas last rocked out at the venue in 1980 and Blue Oyster Cult in 1981. Tickets start at $29 and go on sale Saturday, January 31st at 10am at all Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone at 800.745.3000, at Ticketmaster.com or at the MassMutual Center Box Office.  For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.MassMutualCenter.com.

KANSAS has spent than four decades as a part of the soundtrack of the lives of multiple
generations of music lovers. The band’s first public statement appeared on their self-titled
album in 1974. "From the beginning, we considered ourselves and our music different and we hope we will always remain so." Little did this legendary rock group realize that back in the early ‘70's, what seemed to be “different," was actually ahead of its time.

 This "garage band" from Topeka released their debut album in 1974 after being discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner.

 The band has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, Best of KANSAS), one platinum live album (Two for the Show), and a million-selling gold single, ‘Dust in the Wind.’ KANSAS appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70's and ‘80's and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ was the #2 most played track on classic rock radio in 1995 and went to #1 in 1997.

The band, which is currently comprised of original drummer Phil Ehart, bassist/vocalist Billy Greer, keyboardist David Manion, vocalist/keyboardist Ronnie Platt, violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale, and original guitarist Richard Williams, continues to perform in front of large and enthusiastic audiences around the world.
