Since we don't have school teachers, we're made up of a core group of parents that support us. We build in a garage in a student's house, and they pay for our propane heaters, our food, and they drove us out to 103's facility every weekend to drive practice. We love them for their support.

Our team parents stuck by us all weekend. They were in the stands, making all our kids were exactly where they had to be and keeping things in line. Most especially is our 'team mom'...my mom. She has been the complete support for the team all 4 years.

Before our last final match, I looked up to her, and said "Mom, this one's for you."

...and we won.

You can see some of our parents in the back cheering. They were so happy for us.

(my favorite is btween the meditation photo and the one where I'm rolling my eyes at my coach & driver. & yes, I DO stick my tongue out when I'm concentrating on operating. )
Those are some really great pictures!
Congratulations Libby, Wayne and 1923.

Re: pic: 1923: WE DID IT!

That's really quite an amazing story. So much can go wrong at a regional but sometimes the Robot Gods make it so and clearly it happened for you guys

To put a little perspective on things, Purdue FIRST had their first regional win over the weekend and it took ten years to do it. Plenty of close calls, but this was the first.

Congratulations!

Congratulations Team 1923. I know you worked very, very hard to get to this moment.

Looking at the pictures Libby linked, it struck me how often over the years Wayne has shown up in photos standing behind successful drivers. 1923 is lucky indeed to have this great mentor on board.

Congratulations, winning the regional on your first time in the elimination tournament, that AMAZING !! Great work & good Luck the rest of the season!

I've yet to experience this, in the past 9 years we've been in the eliminations 5 times and have yet to make it to the Semi-Finals.

Re: pic: 1923: WE DID IT!

That picture is Priceless. I had no idea of how much you guys had to go through to even compete this year until I talked to Wayne. We were standing about 10 feet away from your pit and he said "look, I don't do anything, it's all them." I turned around and saw a fury of activity in the pits and I think everyone was a student. You guys should be really proud.

One last thing, I think this picture should be titled "We're not done yet!".... See you in Philly.
