Go to Post PS: When/if it gets to be too easy to build a machine that can accomplish a recent/typical FRC game, then I suspect it will be time for someone to unveil a harder game. - gblake [more]

Re: pic: Because Robots...

This family is the reason why I am where I am today. Every one of them has impacted me in a way that is sometimes hard to believe. Both Mr.Dutra and Art 4 constantly inspire me to push myself farther and learn new things with not only engineering, but life. After working with both over the past three season and before, the shear detection they have is almost overwhelming. Sometimes i'm baffled how Art 3&4 are still conscious, the amount of knowledge and ideas they have combined with their never sleep, ever audited is unbelievable and the reason GUS is where it is today, and where I will be in the future.

Mrs.Dutra and Tina are by far a couple of the nicest people you will ever meet in the world. No matter where the team is in the standings, or whether or not the robot is running, they're convincing others to dance with them in the stands! They will always have a smile on their faces and are the type of people that will do something nice for strangers, juts because they can. Not to mention Tina has one of the brightest mind I've ever had the privilege to be friends with!

This family is awesome, I can't thank them enough for everything that they do for GUS, FIRST, and everyone!

I love this photo.
There are so many incredible things that robots do, and this is definitely one of them.

Re: pic: Because Robots...

So I don't know how I am only just finding this photo now, but I love it! Thanks Chinmay for posting it! To answer your question, out of the people in this picture we probably have about 36 years of experience. The FIRST magicalness started for our family all at the same time when I was in 4th grade with Lego League. My parents ran a Lego League team in our basement for my brothers, me, and some other kids from our neighborhood. From there, we were all hooked on robots.

Dave, reading your post absolutely made my night. That was one of the nicest things someone has said about our family. Now don't short change yourself because you and your family are pretty awesome too! Just goes to show that families that build robots together, stay together.
