Re: Mentor Recognition Breakfast at Championships

Perfect timing for mentors to be away from their teams. Right before eliminations.

And, uh, the RSVP date passed.

Re: Mentor Recognition Breakfast at Championships

Sorry about the late posting; I just read it in the Essential Information packet for FRC teams and didn't even notice the RSVP date. The info went out to team mentors earlier I guess, but the FIRST Senior Mentors don't always get copied on the e-mail blasts.

And I'm not sure why FTC mentors were not included.

My apologies.

Re: Mentor Recognition Breakfast at Championships

I got the invitation this past Wednesday about mid-day, but neglected to post it.
The timing didn't work as a team activity, so I couldn't attend.
I imagine mentors who signed up through the TIMS invitations might have received these.


I also didn't post a FIRST blast asking when we planned to load-in (Weds or Thurs). They wanted to know for planning purposes.

Re: Mentor Recognition Breakfast at Championships

Was there any notification of this event to teams or mentors anywhere OTHER than in the Championship Essential Information document? I scanned through this year's e-mail blasts and Bill's Blogs and didn't find this event. I'd like to attend, but I've missed the RSVP - again.

Re: Mentor Recognition Breakfast at Championships

This is also the first I'm hearing about it. Was an invite sent only to those teams that were already signed up for Atlanta? Many teams just qualified this weekend, and many mentors are also attending without their team (like me).

I received an email about it before either of my teams qualified. I'm confused...

Same.

I would've loved to go, I still haven't met Woody in person... *Sigh*

Meh, maybe I can trick my Drive Team into taking me out to Breakfast early on Saturday.
