Share your Houston Stories:
I was woken up this morning around 6 o’clock to a notification from OneDrive wanting to show me some videos I took from one year ago today.
Of course, one year ago today, 400 hopeful teams were converging onto George Brown Convention Center… I was thoughtful enough to try and record my teams journey there. After a quick walk down memory lane of my teams first ever trip to the Huston Championship, I thought about everyone on CD who won’t be making the trip to Houston this year due to Covid-19. I thought we all might appreciate an opportunity to reflect, or see the trip through the eyes of some very excited high school students.
So, on this date which has started so many great memories, and is sure to make many more over the coming years, I invite you to recount and share some of your favorite stories, videos, and pictures from the Huston championship, from any year.
I’ll start with my own: (Sorry in advance for vertical)
About 10 minutes of editing later I was able to throw together what little content I had of my team’s trip to Houston. Unfortunately, as soon as competition festivities started, I lost focus of anything outside of our robots performance. I was too young still to realize how unimportant the robot was to my experience as a whole, and I dreadfully regret not recording it all. Please do not make the same mistakes I did, go to conferences, meet other teams, get some buttons, eat some good food, have some fun. For most of you, your robots performance is not the part you are going to remember.
Jason: For pushing me to make some vlogs so I can better remember this moment of my life. (Goodluck with 949)
Gilbert: For making me to go talk to some of my hero’s, in 254, 118, and 148, when I was too nervous.
Geoff: For always helping me through any leadership struggles I had.
Dom: Best CADer known to man.
Evan: For helping us lead our team to our most successful season yet.
Ms. Herzog: For being there year after year.
All other mentors: For making the Robototes what we are.
#Birdallance: For being the best team anyone could ever hope to lead.
