Hey everyone,

Someone on my team got a chance to ask Dean when Ginger would be revaled this week. Dean told him 2002 Nationals! This means big publicity for FIRST! Can’t wait.

p.s. have you ever seen a guy wearing a denim shirt and jeans get into a really sweet limosine?

he goes to dean and asks him…

“So what is IT? I can keep a secret.”

Dean answers with a smile:

“I can keep a secret too.”

Our databasing & button guy waved a dollar in the driver’s face to see if he would tell him if Dean Kamen was in the limo. He didnt answer. :wink:

Dean seemed a little embarassed about the limo actually. When he got in, he rolled down the window and yelled over to a few of us “It’s not mine”

p.s. I thought we agreed to keep the release date a secret, Steve? Geez… :wink:

YES!!! Some of the other members of the team saw a limo outside our regionals. We asked the driver who the limo was for, and the driver told us. The name he said was not Dean’s but we stayed and talked with the driver. One of our guys bribed the driver with a Dollar Bill and asked him, “Are you sure it’s not Dean Kamen”? The driver said no, but then we turned around and lo and behold there was Dean!!! We got his signature, and presented him with a limited edition team button signed by our Button-Master.
