Wanted to post some preliminary info on our regional.
1 huge item of note we will be the ONLY regional or competition with 10 x 15 pits.
We will have seating right up next to the field with a team viewing area.
We are really excited with our venue and the facilities it has to offer. We have the room to potentially expand to a 3 field regional at some date in the future with enough teams. It should be a very good first yeat event.
If anyone out there has the time come see us in OKC - you’re always welcome.
Our only regret this year is not having more veteran teams to help with all of our rookies.
We finished the St Louis regional and had very good event. It took a little bit for the driver to get used to the penalties that this geme is becoming famous for. We are trying to make the necessary arrangements to get to your event. We were not planning ahead for this event but the students feel that we could do better than we did. We should have a final work on all the arrangements today. We will be there with a very small team but will do anything to help rookie teams. Keep an eye out for the really fast Ferrari with alliance cordinated chassis underglow lighting. Hope to see you there.
Andy, good to hear we will have some more veterans at the OKC regional. We have a lot of plans to make it an extremely good event.
If you want send me an email at email@example.com if you’d like more information when the event gets closer.
I will be there volunteering all the way from Rochester, NY! And I am coming with one of Team 1511’s Super Team Moms to give support to all of the rookie teams! This is Shelley’s and my first “Girls Weekend Out” so we will have to watch out that we aren’t too much like Thelma and Louise. We are excited!!! And to add to that, Jane Young from Texas is coming too! You’ll find Jane and I wearing the black and white referee stripes while Shelley will be assisting in Pit Administration. So be sure to stop and say hi!
And all I can say at this point is after having over 30 inches of snow this week in Rochester, I sure hope it truly is spring in Oklahoma!
I won’t be able to make it until Saturday due to work (I’m an instructor, and Thursdays/Fridays are when I turn my classes loose)…but you should see me prowling around OKC then. I’ve volunteered to help out with anything on that day if it’s needed, so who knows what’s going to happen until I get there!
All the way from New York WOW! I am impressed. The FIRST community is so giving to each other it is what makes it special…Weather should be in the seventies for Thursday and Friday and drop into the 60’s on Saturday.
It is spring and the possiblility of severe weather looks to be non existent for those days so that is good news. For those of you coming from afar give Tonya or I a shout and let us know how we can make your stay more enjoyable.
Finally free from the clutches of work! See all of you in Okie City tomorrow ;o) I shouldn’t be too hard to spot…I’ll probably have to dig up an old school FIRST tshirt to wear so I don’t stick out too bad! I wish I still had my Florida tie dye…
This will be my boyfriend’s first introduction to FIRST as well…who knows, if we get lucky and I can network, I may be back in time for 2009…
