Go to Post Dean's never ending fountain of denim. kjolana1124 DonRotolo
Go to Post Do I think the bar is too high? I think impossible dreams and lofty goals are a key part of FIRST; the "top" being extremely far away only pushes people farther. Chris is me Jamie Kalb
Go to Post So the bar is set insanely high. Probably unachievably high for some of us. But what a shame it would be to lower it. pfreivald Taylor
Go to Post Off season? More like on season, our season is always on. joeweber kjolana1124

Go to Post Kids don't just decide they want to build robots then build the next Einstein champion the next year. kjolana1124 Katie_UPS
Go to Post There can be a fine line between intimidation and inspiration when it come to the elite in FIRST. Those teams who have committed to setting the bar for excellence in ways that change the culture, help to draw that line and deepen it. JaneYoung kjolana1124

Go to Post During the day on Thursday, I had to change costumes a few times, being "Andy the inspector", to "Andy the green power ranger drive coach", to "Andy the President of AndyMark, meeting with companies". I am sure some people in the guys' bathroom were wondering what I was up to. Andy Baker Billfred
Go to Post There's nothing like getting your butt kicked by the best! :D Jared Russell Chris is me
Go to Post We have tried doing the cha-cha slide on the airplane, but that went away very quickly - it seems that the pilots don't like all the movement in the plane. Carol Ian Curtis
Go to Post A coin flip is a wonderful thing. Not because it makes the decision for you, but because when the coin is in the air, you realize what you really want. ATannahill Akash Rastogi
Go to Post I don't know how you can blame a robot getting stuck in the goal on the GDC. The field drawings showed all of the dimensions of the goals. If a team doesn't want to risk getting stuck then they need to plan around it. JamesBrown Billfred
Go to Post Manual labor experience with engineering training is a powerful combination. N7UJJ JaneYoung
Go to Post I think one of they beauties of the program is how it can include so many different interests our students have. Doc Wu Akash Rastogi

Go to Post You should qualify the same way you eliminate if you ask me. sircedric4 Travis Hoffman
Go to Post Man, Earthquakes all over the place, Volcanos and clouds of ashes, S&Ps down 25 pts! and now 1114 is first seed and going to probably pick 469... yep, id say the end of the world is near scessama Chris is me
Go to Post Andy Grady does a great job of running the WayBack machine for us new to FIRST. Foster JaneYoung
Go to Post I've never seen a spam bot edit posts before Vikesrock Michelle Celio
Go to Post I was proud that there was no whining, no finger pointing and no complaining. Vikesrock JaneYoung
Go to Post When we learn physics, we almost always "ignore friction". The real world never does... Mike Betts Jimmy Cao
Go to Post Only a few more days till i get to see her again! This is sad you would think I was talking about a chick... no wonder my gf gets jealous. XD sportzkrazzy dodar
Go to Post Strive for excellence in everything you do, but also recognize it in others when you see it, rather than try to drag it down. Joe G. JaneYoung
Go to Post I'd rather have a target on my back than be invisible to the competition. Chris is me thefro526

Go to Post The Bus includes Free Wifi and 120v Power (the bare essentials for any robotics team member) Clinton Bolinger Zach O
Go to Post if we aren't here for some wisdom...what are we here for? Molten Taylor
Go to Post Arguing or defending is not how to accept feedback. Someone who shares their opinion cannot be wrong - their opinion is their opinion. DonRotolo Karibou
Go to Post knowing 'my breath stinks' has helped me far more than any thanks and praise I've ever received.. DonRotolo rsisk
Go to Post Do not interrupt, do not defend yourself - just listen. After they are done, be sure to thank them for their honest feedback, and close the books. Arguing or defending is not how to accept feedback. DonRotolo Molten
Go to Post I believe that "going home a winner" is more a matter of perception than anything else. JesseK Billfred

Go to Post Instead of dreading the potential alliance think of ways to impress them so they want you to be part of it! Koko Ed Alex Dinsmoor
Go to Post I didn't know that Dean Kamen had 3 arms. kevin.li.rit NorviewsVeteran
Go to Post Code doesn't break. It reacts exactly the same time every time. When something new happens that never happened before, it's because the mechanicals, electricals or drivers gave the code some new stimulus that wasn't tested before. GaryVoshol Matt Krass
Go to Post Remember. There is no controls team, no mechanical team, and no business team without The Team. Tom Line billbo911
Go to Post Who would have thought a triangular robot would fit into a triangular goal :rolleyes: Wayne Doenges JohnBoucher
Go to Post Michigan teams will eat your souls. You have been warned. MishraArtificer Alex Dinsmoor
Go to Post Yes ONE blue banner would be nice one of these days, but I've never lost focus of why we as mentors do what we do. It's about preparing the students for "defense" in life, and laugh when your robot gets scored into a goal. Chris_Elston Billfred
Go to Post You have the rest of your life to play video games. Time at an FRC tournament is precious. Use it wisely. gblake rsisk
Go to Post There's the problem!! The #1 reason to blame the programmers: They always forget to grease their code. :rolleyes: Jack Jones JBotAlan
