Last week Andy shared some difficult news with the community following FIRST’s most recent communication on the continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic upon the 2020 and 2021 seasons. It has been said in other channels, but we truly appreciate the outpouring of messages and support from the community over the past few days.
In addition to his list of 5 ways that you could help AndyMark, Andy also promised that we would be releasing a survey in the near future to help us to plan for the path forward. I’m pleased to present the first of two surveys with you today:
This survey is an exploration of your general build plans for the next year, along with how you anticipate those plans will affect your team’s budget. The second survey, to be released within the next week, will be a more specific dive into design considerations, workspace essentials, potential new products, and seeking input on certain products that are in our active development queue.
We have some incentives for you to fill out this survey:
- Basic Incentive:
- A chance to win one of 5 $25 AndyMark gift certificates.
- Stretch Incentives:
- If 700+ FRC Teams respond, Andy will share video of him ordering his favorite pizza while wearing a fabulous CyberTooth onesie.
- If 1000+ FRC Teams respond, Andy will ALSO go for a relaxing float in Lake AndyMark, the perpetual puddle in our parking lot where geese live.
Multiple team members are welcome to submit the survey, but for the sake of the Stretch Incentives we will only be considering unique team numbers.
Please fill out the survey, share it with your neighboring teams, and help us to serve you better in the upcoming seasons.
All the best,
