Very nice Navid. Yes, those are big shoes to fill. Especially when you consider the contributions of Sebastian, Shawn, Austin, Olivia, Jay, BG, Stephanie, and you. Come to think of it, I've seen your feet ... not a problem.

Better start learning Solidworks, Dave! Good to see some good CAD experience coming to 190.

Re: pic: Team 1983 CAD poem

Thank you Navid, and everyone. Please, don't hesitate to ask for any help you ever need for the team. I WANT to continue to be a skunk. As for 190, I'd be happy to provide as much INVENTOR (and SolidWorks) help as you guys could ever need.

Nice poem, Navid! Big shoes to fill indeed, but I'm sure you (all) are up to the challenge.

Re: pic: Team 1983 CAD poem

Hey, uh, unrelated, but does the skunkworks team have any affiliation with Lockhead's skunkworks?

Re: pic: Team 1983 CAD poem

We attempt to approach the same level of awesome. After short study however it seems that there is an apparent limit as our awesome approaches theirs.

But no, there is no actual connection beside the name and some of the reason behind the name. Being that Team 1983 is from Aviation High School, our previous campus did not have the most pleasant oder about it, and we hope to push robotics someday as the real Skunk Works has pushed Aviation, we felt that the name was suitable.

It is important to remember that mimicry is the greatest form of flattery.

Ironically enough, at the old campus 1983 was just down the street from Boeing...
