**FIRST EMAIL**/FIRST Finale Survey

Hello FIRST Community:

With the Championship transition from Atlanta to St. Louis in 2011, FIRST is currently evaluating what we’ve done in the past and thinking about what we might like to do for the FIRST Finale in the future. To have a clean slate is very exciting and we want to make sure that we know what YOU think. Although it seems far away, it takes many months to plan an event of this size and the *FIRST *staff will be hard at work doing just that over the summer.

You can help us plan the best Championship EVER by giving us your feedback on the following short questionnaire:


It will only take a few minutes and the deadline for submission is Thursday, June 3rd. Thank you for your input!

They should “plan” to start it when the FIRST championships is “actually” over.
Going to an event and running out of food is no fun for something that cost $$$$.

They should plan it in such a way that people don’t leave during the award ceremonies or the Einstein matches.

(I don’t have any ideas of how to do this, but I think it’d be nice if people didn’t leave the competition before it was over).

I don’t know about other people, but we personally never had to leave early to make it to the Finale. We’ve always stayed until the end of the finals and have had plenty of time.

I agree, this year our team stayed until the final matches and even though our hotel was steps away from the Dome and across the street from the park, we still only had about an hour or so :confused:
