Can you help the Corunna Robotics team today?  If you've got an old snowblower lying around, you may be able to.

Team FridgeBot needs a 2 stage Auger Gear Box before a competition on Thursday.  

"If you have a trash snowblower lying around let me know. The only part we need off it is the gear box but will take whatever you want gone," Lead Mentor Scott Stap said.

The part on the team's competition robot broke at practice on Monday, he said, and the team has a competition on Thursday.

Reach the team on Facebook or contact Stap at 810-691-0687.
