Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

As a captain and driver for team 1396 i would like to thank everyone at nats, and everone on CD for their support! We couldnt have done it without you guys. Especially i want to thank teams 1340, 358 (Robotic Eagles), 33 (Killer Bees) and 494 (Goodrich Martians) for their help throught our short but sucessful build season. During these three days i saw what our team and FIRST are really about. I saw what our team was capable of, and am convinced we can do anythign if we try hard enought. I wish that every other team out there, can experiance the spirit of FIRST and gracious professionalis as we did, for it is in times like these that both truly come out. I can withought a doubt say that i am proud of this robot and even in the matches we lost i felt that it performed to its full potential. There is a quote that i had on an english essay a while back (lol) that i think applies to us and our situation, more so the second part of it, but the whole thing holds true.

Talking Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

I just wanted to add my amazement to the long list of impressed people already here... I met team 1396 at the competition, I went to see their robot after I heard what happened to them and my first thought was "Am I at the right pit?" I could not believe that the robot sitting there was build in just a few hours! After that I started talking to the team members and i must say they are amazing people, who didn't just quit when things went bad. All and all I am just happy to have met such people, and i was on my feet and cheering as loud as i could when they won that Judge's Award because i have never before met a team that deserved it so much... Good work Guys!

Hey I took that picture hehe. I must agree with Crazybear I'm sure there 10hr bot can win against their 6.5 week bot. Nevertheless they are definitely experience now in building a simple yet effective robot!

I wasn't at nats, but when I was watching the webcast and I heard them talk about what happened I was amazed. The sheer determination of this team really sets an example for other teams! Congrats to 1396 for perhaps setting the record for quickest FIRST robot built

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

I do not normally revive old threads but since John Boucher pointed to this I had to put in my two cents. Without a doubt this is a defining moment for FIRST. For those of you who were not in the division or Atlanta that year, it is hard to explain. A team came to play but had no robot. Gracious professionalism dictates that if you come to play, I must help you. And they got lot's of help and I am proud to know many of those people personally. For a team to be able to participate is the greatest honor, to deny them that ability was unthinkable. When explaining GP to non Firsters or to newbies, I always use this example. I used this story the other night and the reaction as always is the same...a blank, disbelieving stare. This is proof we can change the world.

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

I have been very fortunate to have been told this story but this is the first time I've seen or read this thread. I'm not sure when the tears started clouding my vision while reading..probably one of Mark McLeod's posts but Rich Wong and Andy Grady didn't help.

This thread should surface like this before every new season. It is motivating and inspiring. And jawdropping.

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

doesnt that make you wonder... if at a basketball game the best player on the team broke his leg, and the opposing team had magic powers and were able to heal him...

would they?

Naw, basketball isn't nearly as great a sport as FRC. They play for the money. We play for honor, dignity, and respect.

Re: pic: 1396 One-Day Robot

I heard this story when it happened. I have used it repeatedly as an example of what FIRST is really all about.

Truly inspiring!
