Community Awards, the Dean’s List Finalist that Got Away, and Season Over?

Community Awards

Do you ever think to yourself “FRC should have an award for….(fill in the blank)”?  We sometimes get suggestions for new awards here at FIRST Headquarters.  It’s hard for us to accommodate these, as our current awards slate is very full, and fitting in and judging the awards we currently have is already a challenge.  However, this doesn’t mean those suggested awards don’t have merit!

Doing the Right Thing

Over the weekend I attended the Central Washington Regional at Central Washington University in Ellensburg.   My experience up until the final round was wonderful.  Folks were having fun, the volunteers were great, matches for the most part were running smoothly, I saw some terrific robots, and, I think, I made some new friends.  Things did not go as expected in the final round, though, and it caused some significant pain for many present.  I’d like to talk about this.

Wild Cards 2013 and the Harlem Shake

Hello Teams,

I hope everyone caught up on some sleep over the weekend.  Only a few more days until our first official events of the season, and as we say up here, I am ‘wicked’ excited!
