Thank and Congrats
The Great Lakes Regional was certainly GREAT! What awesome bots and competition. Just wanted to be sure to Thank team 857 from above "the bridge" (it's a Michigan thing) for picking our team. Being that I spent a couple years at Tech (in all that snow) I am so grateful that you guys looked past our bad matches and gave us a chance.
I also want to say to team 68 - you guys are great partners. You have another awesome bot that everyone should want to play with. Unfortunately, 68 and 857 - things didn't work out this time, another day a little more luck and who knows.
Also - congrats to another great showing by my buds at 27, 33, and 111 (wow- words can't describe you guys). I was very happy for 217 Thunder Chickens rule!
Congrats to 67 (who's HOT?) , 302 - Dragons from Lake Orion and 226 Troy HS.
Finally, to teams that don't often get recognized - team 49 (great job, keep up the great work) and 519 Golightly HS from Detroit (it was a great time playing with you guys in the 300+ match, you were great partners - even if we weren't sure we won until it was announced) Teams like 49 and 519 and the moments (both good and bad) are what make FIRST a wonderful experience. There is nothing like the feeling of shared happiness when something good happens, and the honest feeling of good sportsmanship when offered to you in condolence, after something goes bad.
Good luck to all - Hope to see you all in Houston.
