Go to Post You can never have enough FIRST! :D Koko Ed EddieMcD
Go to Post Gotta love it... FIRST's GDC...providing entertainment to loads of bored Bostonian FIRST'ers on a friday night. Andy Grady EddieMcD
Go to Post These predictions are just a bit of fun. Neither these, nor the division threads, are meant to be comprehensive. Don't like 'em? Go out there and prove them wrong! Looking Forward efoote868
Go to Post However, mentoring isn't for you. It's for the others. Alan Anderson efoote868
Go to Post I did everything in high school... but only FIRST allowed me to be me. treffk Ekcrbe
Go to Post Adam, when most of us look at your robots, we aren't thinking, "How Creative!" What we are thinking is more like, "Holy Crap!" Richard Wallace Ekcrbe
Go to Post Engineering fundamentally comes down to problem solving, and if the students can't get excited and inspired by the problem solving process because someone has spoon fed them a solution, then nobody wins. Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime. kevinw Eldarion

Go to Post "Oblivious" people asking questions are what gives us an excuse to sit around on CD. Ryan M. Elgin Clock
Go to Post It doesn't make a team better if they have just one sponsor or if they have 100 sponsors. However, you should commend a team who struggled to pay the bill with a list of sponsors one hundred long for showing their strength, perseverance and love for participating in the FIRST robotics program. MikeDubreuil Elgin Clock
Go to Post And Dave...should I borrow someone's hair dryer from here in case the NASA truck needs some de-icing again this year? Billfred Elgin Clock

Go to Post To all programmers: you are Geniuses! Ashley Weed Elgin Clock
Go to Post Just like a mentor used to call a deburring tool, the whirlygig....it just sticks. Also, whirlygig....what a sweet name for a tool. Stephen Kowski Elgin Clock

Go to Post We are making this up as we go along - please don't confuse us by telling us the way that it really should be done. dlavery Elgin Clock

Go to Post Am I the only one who thinks robots are the main attraction of a regional, and there isn't a need for more distraction? Adam Richards Elgin Clock

Go to Post Fire and smoke are great if you're into Battlebots, but we like to avoid them in FIRST competitions. Elgin Clock
Go to Post As a rookie team member at my first event, i had a great time, the little glitches meaning nothing. Gluedtothefloor Elgin Clock
Go to Post It doesn't always work when you put the word gracious in front of anything. Think Battle bots, after a winning match do ya go over to the loser and go we Graciously kicked your butt!? Alex Cormier Elgin Clock
Go to Post In fact, one of our volunteers just found out about the entire FIRST program two weeks ago and had so much fun on Thursday that he came back on Friday to help us again! KathieK Elgin Clock

Go to Post When it was at 222, I was like 'Tigertrons from Tunkhahoohaasomethingconfusing Pennsylvania!' and my friend hit me for being such a loser. Church Elgin Clock
Go to Post Watch out world, FIRST is going to become mainstream! Church Elgin Clock
Go to Post Remember, FIRST is a great opportunity that will get you ahead in the long run but don't forget about the short run either. ChrisMcK2186 Elgin Clock
Go to Post *quick grab the epoxy we can rebuild him, make him stronger than before* amos229 Elgin Clock
Go to Post We should have a rule in CD, no sad booboo faces that make you want to cry... JaneYoung Elgin Clock

Go to Post I remember seeing that hair do. It is what inspired me to become an MC one day. Tetraman Elgin Clock
Go to Post Who cares about the score? The score is just numbers on a board, the exciting part is watching the robots interact and seeing robots( and more importantly, people) do the impossible. Herodotus Elgin Clock
Go to Post If we can transform our culture to the point where girls swoon over guys as they pull their dremel off their belt and carve some speed holes in a smooth fluid motion, I think FIRST is half way to its goal. When we get the guys to swoon over the girls for their hot moves on the 5-axis, we have won. EricVanWyk Elgin Clock
