SCRRF - chance to ride the Segway

LA opportunity to ride the Segway
There are dates for non amazon customers. I'm an amazon customer, but not high tech high dollar customer, which is why I think I hadn't received this. A mentor forwarded this to me. I don't know if you can get amazon dates if you didn't personally receive this.

I went to the one today, and it was practically empty. I got to ride the Segway for almost 20 minutes. Now all I have to do is find $4950 lying around to buy one!

I went to the one on the 18th and I was the only person there for a while. I got to ride it for a long time too. The Segway staff was really impressed that I was on a FIRST team so they gave me a T-shirt!

Whoever says the Segway is stupid is themself stupid. That machine is awsome!
