Congratulations to you guys!

One thing I love about ship day is how everybody, from the rookie to the ten-plus-year veteran, can feel accomplishment and pride in what they've spent the last six weeks pouring their hard work, time, blood, sweat, and tears into.

Also, I enjoy restoring a normal sleep cycle. But not as much as the first thing.

Re: Dear Rookies - It only gets better....

One of my very favorite parts of FRC is seeing the tired but beaming smiles on the faces of the students and the mentors of a rookie team at the end of build season. In some small way (or perhaps large way), they have been transformed and have begun the process of building a team. It never gets old.

Re: Dear Rookies - It only gets better....

Time to bring up another post I have bookmarked from my adventures through the spotlights.

Congratulations to all the rookies for making it through your first FRC build season!!

Cool Re: Dear Rookies - It only gets better....

i know its been tough for rookies this season. this may include a lack of funding, manpower, or skill. but this is not the end. you will have the time of your life at your first frc competition, whether you win or lose. not only is this a competition, but a culture. each regional is like a party for our own little culture

Kinda funny - when I originally wrote that post I was with SPAM; I've mentored 2 rookie teams since then and it certainly applied to us looking from the other side

[ontopic] That was a heck of a read. I never saw this thread before it got bumped this last time. Anyone who goes to the Michigan Championships, if they're still at the Convocation Center at EMU, I'll probably be there. Look for me in my vintage Team 240 TEMPEST Robotics shirt, or my Button Mail Armor.[/ontopic]

P.S.: I still need to finish that ****ed thing. If you have buttons, I'll take one of each variant. Also, Am I the only one with all 5 Gearheads buttons?

Re: Dear Rookies - It only gets better....

yes... i hope everyone on all teams feel accomplished at what they have done... even if you only made one part on the robot, you were a big help... without that part the robot wouldn't function properly... so good luck to all the teams and see you at the regionals

Hard to believe this was from FIVE years ago (our rookie year), and it still fits perfectly. Very nice, Gary, and thanks again.
