Re: Crown Jewel of your Collection

My inspectors hat signed by Dean and Woody is by far the crown jewel of my FRC collection. I would love to get it signed by Don Bossi as well.

Re: Crown Jewel of your Collection

I would have to say my team shirt signed at the 2015 Utah Regional by Dean Kamen. Or the picture that I had taken with him

Re: Crown Jewel of your Collection

Mine would be my "medal" for breaking the robot in various ways, its slightly more than half of a broken plastic drive track pulley hanging on a string. Oh the memories...

Ugh... That robot!! We're so close to winning a regional in Sacramento-Davis that year. Your team was a blast to play against and did so well as rookies, quite impressive. Here's the one Finals match we won... for some reason I don't have the matches we lost

Re: Crown Jewel of your Collection

Probably my favorite would be my giant glowing sword which unfortunately is still a work in progress from last season (2016) but I love the reactions I get from everyday people and people at my school.https://drive.google.com/file/d/10TL...ew?usp=sharing

Re: Crown Jewel of your Collection

mine would be the invited guest badge i got from my teams 2016 appearance at champs. it was my senior year and i was able to get right up next to the field to watch. i also go that to be signed by dean kamen. i also have a piece of the frame from the 2015 robot. we didn't get farther then the district championship that year however we competed at 3 districts and a district champs. the reason why it is something i will keep for as long as i can is because that year i was human player, lead scout and strategist, and a chairmans presenter. so that year i did a lot.

My favorite classic robotics shirt is my Exploding Bacon hockey jersey (I had to buy it). My actual favorite is my custom Angry Eric hockey jersey I had made.

Re: Crown Jewel of your Collection

Definitely the hand written notes I've received from students on the teams I've mentored. Helps remind me why I do what I do.

Re: Crown Jewel of your Collection

I have a ton of awesome stuff in my collection, including MOE Sticks (get off my lawn and search the archives here.), tetras from champs my senior year, and a few other cool momentoes from 16 years in FIRST. One of the sweetest things in my collection is the table and chairs set from the IRI auction this year.

Not to get sappy /sentimental, but the best things in my collection are the friends I have made across the world, and some amazing memories I still have from my time on RAGE FRC 173. Also the fact that, because of my experiences in FIRST, I get to work for The Andy Baker at AndyMark doing what I love every day, and knowing that I get to help thousands of students who are just like I once was.

Re: Crown Jewel of your Collection

Physically, the best thing I have is my collection of 28 driver coach buttons from 10 seasons of coaching.

Non-physically, it's the feedback from the kids after they graduate. Some letters evoked emotion, others (like Facebook posts) usually evoke a sense of "woohoo!". It's hard to describe beyond that.

Re: Crown Jewel of your Collection

I'd have to say the boulder that I got from GRITS 2016 is my crown jewel; they had a bunch of leftover shiny new boulders and were handing them out.

This, a thousand times over. Medals are nice and shirts are cool, but I've given away enough of both without feeling any loss. But the notes my students have given me over the past years are some of my most prized possessions, FRC or other.
