As a participant on the 1st show, I want to note that a lot of work is put into this by these great volunteers and from FIRST. Prior to me being a part of Ep. 1, I had no idea the amount of planning that takes place just to put this on. Mahalo to all of these volunteers!

I hope rookies and newer teams take advantage of the advise given by these veterans, who have done FIRST long enough to understand what it takes.
