LI team party

Hey guys. Well, I'm trying to figure out what to do for the LI regional team party. Now, Andy Baker had this wonderful idea of having a talent show. I asked the regional coordinator, and he pretty much gave me the green light. So, here's the idea. The LI regional is going to have a talent show during the team party. Now, since I'm the one planning it, I need some ideas. I was talking to Steve Shade and Andy last night and they came up with ideas like a Woodie Flowers and Dean Kamen look alike contest as well as perhaps a skit of some kind trying to show the typical FIRST day. I'm hoping to have quite a few categories and hopefully all the teams can participate. Money is really short for the regional though (as it is for most regionals) so I was also thinking that perhaps for prizes, each team could bring a few spare shirts or something and that could be used as the prize for who wins. Although, I need some more ideas for this too, 'cause if a large group of people wins...well...we need a different prize, since I doubt I'll have that many shirts. So, what do you guys think of this idea? And any suggestions on prizes or contests would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

~Christina

For prizes, mementos like broken gears and bent drive shafts are always neat, if inane. How about trophys made out of dead victors or fried motors? Everyteam has a ton of junk like that they don't need. Just mount it to a bit of wood, burn in what it was for, and you've got your self a FIRST stlye trophy. Makes a good paper wieght at least.

Picture or IRI Awards

Ha! Beat you to it, David!

Here is a pic of the awards from the 2001 "Indiana Robotics Invitational". We took 3/4" thick black acrylic and mounted an aluminum plate with graphics on it and some silver painted parts. My favorite was the silver painted Skyway wheel... it actually spun!

We had a lot of fun making these awards. For a cheaper version, I suggest using wood instead of acrylic.

Andy B.

ps... I wish there was a talent show at a Regional we're attending.

Wow!! These are such great ideas! I just have to recruit some people into helping me make these awards, but I have time. :-) Does anyone have any ideas for contests? I'm just not quite that creative.
