Re: Lessons from a rookie
Congratulations... it's great to see FRC doing well in Calgary. You'll love Seattle next year... our team played there many years, and I've been able to return to inspect and judge the past two. I'll be looking forward to meeting your team... do you have any mentors/members from other teams working with you?
We've talked about getting an FRC regional going in the west for years... it is a huge task and nice to see that it has some fresh momentum. Keep pushing... it won't happen by accident.
Keep up the good work, and remember that you'll be elegible to compete for Chairman's next year... document all your work in the off-season with photos, and videos... keep your thank-you notes and correspondance. You'll find you can learn a lot more from 1114 than just how to win matches!
Well done! That's the best finish yet for a team from Western Canada!
