Student on team #70, Auto City Bandits, from Powers Catholic High School and Kettering University.
Now that this season has ended, its time to begin thinking about next years season :). As I go off to college, I am presented with challenge of starting a team. I am going to the University of Michigan next year. I have talked with another student who will be a freshman there who is also interested in starting a team, and have heard that there is a teacher, somewhere in Ann Arbor, who is interested in starting a team. I am in the process of getting ahold of them. I am looking for advice on where I should go next. Where should I look for sponsers first? Who at the University, or a company, should I approach? When do I need to register a team? When do I need to register for regionals, nationals? How can I convince students to join the team? I have so many questions. I would LOVE any advice you guys out there can give me as you are the best resource anybody can have. My screen name (AIM) is superbill621. Feel free to IM me, or reply. I would be more than willing to meet with anyone in the area, Clarkston, Pontiac, Flint, etc.
Thanks for the help.
