They say third the time is a charm and after being delayed twice during the pandemic, this past weekend the first annual Drone Games took flight at Eagle Butte High School. In total, 16 students and six adults participated in the event which consisted of a trajectory drop, an agility obstacle course, a scavenger hunt and an XBox and flight simulator course. Prizes were awarded for winners in each of the three age categories.

  • Grade 9/10: Arabella Allen
  • Grade 11/12: Ryan Porter (1st), Grade 11/12: Trigger Ellis (2nd)
  • Adult: Dana Marshall

Prairie Rose would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to our community partners and volunteers who helped make the first annual Drone Games a big success.
