I forgot an issue at Championship I wanted to be sure to mention. When the Alliances in the finals were asked to shake hands, the fourth team in the Alliance was excluded. This was not good. We wanted to make sure all teams on the Alliance were treated as equally as possible, and this was a miss on our part. We’ll get this fixed for next year. All four teams on each Alliance will be invited to shake hands with the other Alliance.




Just wanted to say a big public THANKS for fixing this for next year! (It was one of the things I was going to mention on my CMP survey, but I obviously don't need to now...)

Along with the handshakes, it would be good for the emcee / announcer to also introduce the 4th alliance team, at least the first time each alliance is introduced on Einstein.

This is the kind of awareness and problems solving that is what makes FIRST so impressive. Not just ignoring something that goes wrong, but sees it and fixes it. Nobody or org orginization is perfect, but this is a great example of what you should do in life and at your jobs. FIRST leads by example. Success is done by striving for perfection, not being perfect!
