Frank Lanford’s announcement at Kickoff was that there would be multiple practice fields at this year’s event and with that info I’m even more pumped up!
I know 4901 is excited to be heading to our second Palmetto Regional after our successful season last year. With a larger team and even stronger robot we hope to help raise the competition level to even greater heights!
How is your team doing? Are you excited about this year’s event? Let’s hear it!
Can anyone say definitively if there will be a team social Friday evening? There has been nothing in either of the “email blasts.” Our Logistics gang is trying to finalize plans, and we always enjoy the team gatherings - so we don’t want to miss out if there will be one.
I’ve heard nothing on the social either…but everything else I’ve heard thus far (including some things I’m sworn to secrecy on) have been very promising. Hopefully we can keep the streak going of pulling off the first match in the world again this year!
I probably wouldn’t entertain Week 1 if it weren’t Palmetto. The Palmetto crew has done a lot to wash the sour taste of also-Week-1 Bayou 2010 out of my mouth, but frankly a couple weekends off never hurt anybody either.
But it’s the home event, and we’re ready to get a USC-backed team into the Palmetto finals again. Time to get this thing!
I pointed it out to John yesterday afternoon–undefeated should be pretty darn easy this year. Just go 2-0 in the finals!
As Barry mentioned, I’ll be getting in the mix on game announcing while splitting some time with 4901. If you told that to 17-year-old me in the stands at the Colonial Center, he would never believe it.
(Okay, so that was the same 17-year-old me that thought window motor drive had a legitimate chance…)
