For the first time in my team’s 13 year history, we made championships. Not just going to go to championships, because we had the money, but actually earned our spot. I’m incredibly proud of the students on my team now, but, I’m now a college sophmore, attending school across the country. And maybe these are just amused ramblings, but… it makes me stop and remember.
I remember my first FRC match. Our robot didn’t move. I remember the first time I was behind the glass during a match. We were holding driver tryouts. I remember a time when we missed matches, because our drive train didn’t work. And, worst of all, I remember a time, when I was called into our teacher advisor’s office during school. Tensions were running so high. And then our advisor walked out on me. On our team. I begged her to come back.
But, I also remember a time when she came back. I remember a time when we started making every match on time. Early even. I remember a time when we gave our first driver test. I remember the time we made a pick list for the first time, when we ranked 13th.
So, I guess, congrats, team 999.
