New to FIRST

Hey Guys,

I'm the Student Leader of Team 1676. This is our first year competing in FIRST (I'm quite hilarious, as you're finding out).

I founded the Engineering Club at my school after having competed in the Panasonic Creative Design Challenge for two years (you guys probably aren't familiar). Well, the challenge was cancelled, and our advisors and students didn't really know what to do. So I started the Engineering Club, and now we're competing in FIRST so that I could give these students "the opportunity I had found in the Panasonic Challenge" (to quote my UPenn essay...btw I'm a Senior).

That's my life story. Well, some of it. Anyway, I'm glad to be competing in FIRST, and I just want to introduce myself.

Thanks guys,
Matt Hayon

Re: New to FIRST

Welcome to FIRST, Matt!
This is really exciting, especially when you figure there are many new teams this year. I hope you like it here on Chief Delphi. It really is a nice place.
FIRST has so many wonderful opportunities to offer, it's an endless thing. I hope that your team will be able to enjoy the wonderful experiences FIRST has to offer.
Good luck this year, and if you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me or IM me. You'll find that information in my profile.
=) --Dori

Re: New to FIRST

Welcome Matt.

We, team 25, had your mentors over a few weeks back and have started to help mentoring, at least a general mentorship of you guys for the season. If you need anything, you can contact us. Hopefully a few of us from 25 may be sick one day, and go to your school and help you guys out for a little while and show you what FIRST is really about and some other random things about FIRST. You can find almost anything here on ChiefDelphi and if you can't, make a thread, or ask someone from 25, and if we don't know, I'm sure we can find that out for ya. Hopefully you guys have a great rookie season and have some great seasons yet to come.

If you do say something that isn't just for fun or praising something, which hopefully you do, just be prepared to back up what you said.

Remember: GP is Gracious Professionalism, not Glorifiying Plesantries. Saying something negative does not mean you are evil. It could help someone out a lot.

Anything that I post is an opinion from my own mind. Some may agree with it, others may not. However do not negatively associate anyone else, including any team I work with, with my opinion.

It's wonderful to see "aged and experienced" teams, and all teams, reaching out to new founded teams to help them become established and gain a preview on what is ahead.

Best of Luck to you Matt, and 1676 in the new year!

Welcome to first the place where you can be competitive in a team, here people can learn more in one year of FIRST than in four years of high school.
