The most memorable experience for me of this year for me was of the NJ Regional awards ceremony. As they were reading off the intro to the judge's award we kept thinking that it sort of sounded like us. About the time I was fully convinced, I saw the X-cats (and I'm told Kodak did this too) stand up and start cheering because they knew it was us. That combined with the fact that it was for restarting the team felt very good. My team made me be the first person to go up for the award which was also nice. This also happened to be about the same time when I realized that all the work that I put in was worth it. I think overall that it's been a good year for me and for the whole team. Good enough to make me come back next year anyway.
Matt who was asked by someone who works at the Engineering Dept of RIT if he was going to run the team again next year and realized that he wouldn't give it up for the world...
