I wanna send a personal congratulations to teams 71, 111, and 537 for winning the Midwest regional. It was quite a show out there. I also want to congratulate 111 for winning the chairmans, 71 for winning the quality award, 45 for winning the inspiration award, and all the teams that walked away with a trophy this weekend. On a more personal note I want to thank all the teams that were willing to help us out after our gearbox broke.
By chance do you know any of the other award winners. My team (1240) had to leave at 5 so we could get home and deliver our rental van back in time. We weren’t expecting anything but it still bothered me when we left prior to the awards at 5.
I would also like to say congratulations to all of the teams at the midwest regional. If I wasn’t a senior, I would definitely be back. Lastly thank you team 877 and UPS (1675) for selecting us to compete with you guys as the 8 seed.
EDIT: Also thank you to the WARBOTS (1625?) and team 111 for the programming help on saturday to get our autonomous working. Thank you.
EDIT 2: Thank you for that link Arefin
you can find out about the awards here.
I would like to thank everyone who came. It was great to see old and new faces at the competition. The only thing I didnt like was the fact that THE THUNDER CHICKENS WERE NOT THERE! I was so shocked when I didnt see a single Chicken outfit. :ahh:
A midwest regional without the Thunder Chickens is like a laptop without a monitor…something so great is missing. (Yes, you can quote me on that one).
Either way, congratulations to all award winners. You put in a lot of effort, and it paid off :]
