Dear FIRST,

In 2007, let's make Kickoff in the evening.

Thanks,
The West Coast

Re: Dear FIRST,

Please forgive Wilshire's enthusiasm.

The rest of the midwest (myself included) likes to sleep too.

If it was about 12 hr time diference between Israel and Alaska, then hypothetically we could just shift that 12 hours to a different time slot?

Re: Dear FIRST,

I'd actually prefer to be in Hawaii for kickoff.

Not only is Hawaii incredibly awesome, but I'd be wide awake at 3-4 AM

Re: Dear FIRST,

Quoted from section 11 of the 2006 manual on the FIRST Site*.
Quote:
West Coast Kickoff 2007 (Section 11)

1) Set up VCR/TIVO to record kickoff.
2) Watch when you want to, maybe at 10am to keep in synch with East coast.
3) Enjoy 2007's Water game.






*not really.

Who, exactly, would volunteer to be doing kit distribution from ~8am until ~2pm on kickoff day out here on the west coast? Yeah... doesn't help those of us who lead our teams and need to get our kits of parts, but also like to sleep a little. Thanks for the thought, though.

Re: Dear FIRST,

You guys do know that you get 3 extra hours to do whatever, be it kit pick-up or brainstorming or whatever.

Re: Dear FIRST,

I really feel for those out West. Doing the Kickoff here was difficult too. It seems that it is really tough to get teenagers out of bed anywhere, anytime. I know that they wouldn't get out of bed early to line up for X-Box 360 or concert tickets for their favorite groups so why for FIRST?

Re: Dear FIRST,

An evening kickoff means working late into the night finishing inventory and initial brainstorming, but noon eastern time seems reasonable.
