Re: Meeting FIRST People in odd places

I am training for a triathlon to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Team-in-Training" and met a former mentor from a Colorado team who is also doing the same tri.

Re: Meeting FIRST People in odd places

I'm not too sure if this counts, but I met Neha Batra of 1345 three years ago at a summer camp at Northwestern University, before either of us were involved in FIRST, and we got started talking again just recently via the forums

This got me thinking about something. Where have you met FIRST people in odd places? By odd places, I mean anywhere that you wouldn't consider a FIRST-related activity. So, what are your stories? They don't have to be much, but I think it would be cool to get an idea of where FIRSTers are in the "outside world."
Hey! a Huron guy! I'm from pioneer HS. Maybe I saw you in Ypsi.

neways, I've met a couple people who sponsor a team in Texas (they didn't know the team name nor number) at my barber shop (Arm and Anvil). It was pretty cool to meet someone involved with FIRST.

Re: Meeting FIRST People in odd places

I was at one of my regular local band concerts and there was a band from Michigan, One for the books, performing that night. Well I was stuck working Merch table for my friends' band and our stuff was next to One for the Books (OFTB). Well eventually they saw my "Thunderchickens" pin and were like, "are you in robotics?" and I was like, Yeah...

Turns out they were in robotics in high school too! Crazy...

Here we are:

Re: Meeting FIRST People in odd places

This was quite a while ago, but I just remembered it for some reason.

I was in New York City at the same time as the NYC Regional (I feel horrible that I couldn't go!) visiting my aunt and uncle. After visiting their new apartment (they had ust bought a new one) we went to see the art show "Ashes and Snow" at the Nomadic Museam. As we were waiting in line to get in, all of a sudden I heard a bunch of people behind me talking about the regional. I turned around and told them that I was also a FIRSTer. I then asked them what their connection to FIRST was. Apparently it was a family... the daughter was on team 555, and they had come to NYC to see her team compete. It was cool to meet people who you have things in common with, that you would never relate to otherwise. FIRST has a funny way of connecting people... I like it.

I was at the mall wearing my killer bees hat when someone asked me if i was part of that team. We talked for a while about robotics. It was interesting.

I've met two Thunderchickens at church and another FIRSTer from our Championships division at an awards ceremony, that was cool

Re: Meeting FIRST People in odd places

Disney Grad was last Friday. After the park let out, my group of friends got on the ferry to get over to the bus parking lot. it was about 3:30ish AM and I was pretty out of it. A girl noticed my collared shirt with the FIRST logo on it and asked if I was on a team. After getting over the shock that 1. a female came over to talk to me and 2. she wanted to talk about robots... we had a short conversation. She was from team 116, which was also somewhat peculiar because I couldn't figure out a group from New Hampshire was doing in Florida, but hey the night was a blast. Good times, Good times.

Re: Meeting FIRST People in odd places

Today at a war canoe regatta in Mississauga, I saw a guy wearing a GTR shirt from this year. I didn't go up and talk to him, however, because by the time I screwed up my courage to do it, I couldn't find him, and I was in too many races/cheering for our varsity team. (I was on Junior Varsity, and helped out the Cawthra Varsity)

Re: Meeting FIRST People in odd places

I met some people on a team in the town close to us at a hair salon that my mom goes to. It was cool because I was bored wating for my mom to get her hair cut, so I talked to them for a while. They were getting free tanning passes to raffle off for their team.
