Re: Thank You FRC Teams from Bill Miller

Thank you again Bill! It was great meeting you at Queen City and I was looking forward to more years of working together with you.

I would love to hear some stories coming out of the behind the scenes from Regionals and FIRST HQ.

Re: Thank You FRC Teams from Bill Miller

Bill,

Yesterday evening a few of us from FiM had a nice dinner, and at one point we talked about how great it was to have you at the Michigan State Championship event. Once again, thank you for spending that weekend with us, and encouraging our endeavors here. The individual conversations that we all had with you meant a lot.

Personally, I was impressed and delighted that you took time at the World Championship event to stop and greet us each by name and have a quick conversation, even though it was clear you were busy and had a lot of people to see. I would love to see you back here in Michigan if you ever want to come back to see any of our events, regular or off-season. We'll make sure to take you out for a Detroit Area Mentors Network meeting again.

Thank you for all that you have done for FIRST, and good luck with whatever life brings you next.

Even though I've only been around for two seasons, and don't have much to say, I can say one thing:

Thank you Bill!

Perhaps if there is any interest, I could return to CD sometime in the future to post some of my more memorable experences and funny stories regarding FRC behind the scenes.
Write a book! You could sell it, (we would obviously all buy it) and it would double as a fundraiser! You just have to pick for which team...

With one post, Mr. Miller joins the top 0.7% of Chief Delphi, reputation-wise. I think the community supports him.

Bill, thank you for all you've done. I enjoyed talking with you at the CT regional this year, as well as the various conversations we've both been part of over the last few years. Good luck with whatever you do, and definitely write that book!

Re: Thank You FRC Teams from Bill Miller

Thank you for making such a difference in the lives of young people and the mentors of FIRST teams. You've certainly made a large impact and have as a result led FRC down a path setting us up for future success. Thanks for being that booster and a great leader.

Nate

Re: Thank You FRC Teams from Bill Miller

Bill, it's been an honor working with you both at the Suffield Shakedown & the CT Regional. I've been in Robotics for 10 years in September & have enjoyed all those years. I have learned a lot during this time.
