Championship Event Location [Kamen's Words]

Brought to the people on irc.webmaster.com #FIRSTrobotics 's attention by "dez250"

WJR (Detroit area AM radio station) Interviewed Dean Kamen. While saying that WJR will be broadcasting from the Great Lakes Regional and the Championship in Florida, Dean interrupted and said:
Quote:
I have a new peice of news for you there, too. This year's nationals will not be in Florida. Not even Florida has an arena big enough for us. This year the finals will be in Houston, in the new version of what used to be called the AstroDome.
There you have it folks, thanks to Paul W. Smith and dez250, we know where nationals will be.

The interview goes on about the Segway, iBot, and other things about Dean and his inventions. With a great quote for the refutation of using a Segway vs Walking

maybe FIRST knows that we know where the nationals will be held and theire now just trying to keep it a secret even though those with FIRST Contacts" managed to get some pieces of useful information to us. i think either X-mas / New Years / Kickoff will be the selected days that the nationals could be announced
