Re: Detroit District 2011
As a newly reengaged member of team 469, I see now what I have been missing over the years. The level of gracious professionalism showed by the teams this past weekend was amazing. It would of been easy for teams to notice our fault and wait to point it out when it worked to their advantage, but that's not FIRST culture. Thanks so much for such an exciting tournament and for reaffirming what I have been missing with FIRST over the years, the energy and excitement this past weekend was amazing. Everybody was cheering for everybody, and it gave all the new members of Team 469 a glimpse as to why FIRST is so magical.
Special thanks to 217 for lending us their spare deployment system to try and fasten to our robot. While ultimately we ended up not using it, we would have been lost without you guys!
