If anyone seriously wants to have me as an LRI then I'll happily do the job and sign up instantly. I have never been an RI mind you and I don't actually think FIRST has me down for volunteering for anything other than judging FLL events so I'm guessing they don't want to promote me to the top directly.

That being said, I actively mentor a team and I will not be an LRI for an event they are participating in - mostly because I can't give myself a hard time without everyone thinking I'm more mad than I am and I'd spend the entire time on the phone to Al or Frank asking hypotheticals from 900 students.

No worries, the other inspectors will "take care" of your team for you. It's a standing tradition to catch the LRI's team doing something illegal and then give the LRI a hard time*. (Mucho bonus for it being Andy Baker OR the CRI, Big Al.)

Though I do suggest being an RI for an event or three. It's a lot like being a mentor, except that you get about an hour with each team and you're finding all the problems with their robot** and THEN mentoring them on how to fix it***.


*That's a story, short version being something about "You mean YOU left the form in YOUR car, [LRI]? With your team waiting for it?"
**Hopefully--that's another story.
***Properly--that's yet another story.

Don't forget the all-mentor drive team. Still use a student coach, though.

Bench grinders, random orbital sanders, whatever it takes to get the robot working.
