View Full Version : The FIRST Forum - coming August 1st - Your comments wanted

07-08-2001, 08:55 AM
The official FIRST Forums are being held August 1st, in 3 locations around the country.

The purpose of the forums is for participating teams to help guide Dean and the FIRST people by discussing lessons learned each year.

Since kids cannot attend, we'd like your comments to take with us. What did you like, not like about the game this past year? Any suggestions, complaints, praise?
Make your voice be heard!

We will take this information with us to the Michigan FIRST forum at Eastern Michigan University. Thanks from Team Ford FIRST.

if you haven't seen it yet, you might want to look at last week's "Question of the week": http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=289

It asked something similar, but Ken didn't offer to bring everyone's ideas up at the forum ;)

I would seriously suggest doing a search of the board and seeing how they generally feel about general topics...such as limiting Nationals, how they felt about specific regionals, the game, etc.

Another good idea would be to print these threads out, as well as the polls that were posted.

Plus, I HOPE I HOPE I HOPE FIRST talks about all regionals at these different forums, not just the ones in the area of where the forum is being held. If they do, then they lose out on some valuable opinions about traveling long distances to regionals (such as 47 coming to UTC).

If you need my help, let me know.

Speaking of printing, if you dont want all the jibber-jabber, notice the 'show printable version' link at the bottom of the thread. It makes printing a great deal easier/cleaner.
