July Vacation and Chairman’s Awards

2020 JUN 30 | Written by Frank Merrick.

July Vacation

FIRST is trying something new this year (this seems to be the year to try new things!). We’re closing our office starting at 3 PM Eastern time on Thursday, July 2, for the US holiday on July 4, but then we are staying closed until July 13. Nearly everyone at FIRST HQ will be taking that full week off. We’ll be back to work, rejuvenated, on July 13.

Great news for Regional teams that are waiting for their Chairman’s Award hardware: We started shipping! It will take a while for us to get all the awards shipped though, as several of our trucks (where the awards are currently held) are in storage elsewhere in the country. We’re working to get access, but it may take some time. I promise we won’t forget though!

For folks celebrating July 4th later in the week, I hope you have a fun, safe, and healthy one!

I’m just curious if anyone has received their shipped awards yet. We have not.

We received ours back in June.

I’ve heard from a reliable source that yours is in a storage locker in Kansas City (one of our mentors has a WFAA there as well), but I didn’t hear a timeline on when they’d arrive. Congrats on the Chairman’s at Green Country!

I don’t envy whoever has to dig through the storage locker to find the awards. We’re fine waiting - we delayed our end-of-season banquet until Christmas at earliest, when the seniors will be back from college.

Thanks so much. We were really looking forward to coming to Oklahoma for the event. Hopefully we can see you all this season there. With it in Kansas City it is almost to us. Haha. We haven’t scheduled our end of year banquet yet but that is a great idea of doing it over the holidays.

Our team received our district Chairman’s awards

NE District apparently has the awards and is working on figuring out how/where to deliver them.
