2006 FIRST LEGO League Product Descriptions and Pricing - including FLL NXT Robot Set

From FIRST email received 3-15-06, posted here as a heads-up and for insight into changes for the coming year.  2006 season on-line registration is at http://register4fll.com/.

Greetings Teams:

We are excited that registration for the 2006 FLL season is right around the corner - we hope you are too!  We know that many of you have product and pricing questions, and hope you find the following helpful. 

Please note when registration opens in May, you will have the option of purchasing either the existing (MindStorms RCX) or the new (MindStorms NXT) FLL Robot Set. Of course, veteran teams may continue to use the set they already own. 

We hope to see you all in 2006!
