Come on all you people that were at Battlecry, youve had time to rest by now…or not, but still. 6 states, 9 teams, 13 members, not bad at all. But over 13 more states, countless number of teams, and soo many people to cover still, so lets keep em coming. And if you have any suggestions for anything, just start posting.
Well, mainly we want to keep it on the east coast so we will be able to meet at regionals and all, and it would be easy for us to talk at the right hours.
But, if you plan on coming to eastern regionals next year, then im sure we can make a spot for you. If not then that kind of sux. We will let you come in and talk during our little meetings online though, always cool to have some friendly people in there.
Better yet, we could make a west coast union too. then we could help people start ones for the south, central, north and all. Then we could start a national union that we all meet at the National event obviously…just an idea.
Aignam, just brought a pretty good idea to me. We could possibly go out and get a corporate sponsorship for the union, and at the end of the year, the “best” driver is voted upon by the union, or a certain part. then a scholarship, from the corp sponsor, is given to the highest vote getter. or we could do some long equation to find out who the best one was over the year, depending on the game.
Vote on the panel—obviously, if the company donating the money wanted to have a representative, they would be encouraged and more than welcomed. Otherwise, neutral FIRST Volunteers, experienced mentors, etc, etc. These people are wiser and less prone to play favorites, in most cases.
There are some teams still out there that have not put there drivers in this union. This union should be a great thing for the freshman out there that want to driver or that are new at the stick like myself. by new driver i mean have only drove in one or two comps. hopefully we can learn a thing or two from the good drivers of FIRST.
