That would have been Jacqui Sutton on Team 388 (Grundy VA). I don't know if she has headed back down-under yet, or if she is still around. But it would be very cool if we had more southern hemisphere teams participating, so the Brazilians wouldn't be so lonely!

still here..

Hey, it's good to know that ppl are thinkin bout a post that i wrote so long ago! I'm still in the USA at the moment, will be leaving after graduation and should be home around the end of june... I'm going to try to have the aussie team started by next season, but thatll be kinda pushing it timewise, so in reality it probably wont be up and running until '05... I'm hoping for next yr though...

hey, are you going to be in Sydney? I'm heading down there in July and will be returning to the US in Jan. I know it is before the actual season, but if you want a hand recuiting and getting people interested, let me know!

Australian Team

I think that an Australian team is a good idea, and might work. At our school, Crescent School, we recently had a delegation of Australian school heads visit. We gave a presentation on FIRST and they expressed reasonable interest. I urge Australian who has interest to pursue the possibility of starting a team.
