For the publication of THE NEW COOL, a narrative about FIRST, my publisher has printed out thousands of bookmarks for distribution at Regionals. They’re a little late in the game (so it goes), but I’m looking for teams at the Regionals below who would be willing to pass them out in the stands and in the pits (probably roughly 1,000 bookmarks per regional).
I would send them directly to your team by mail next week. If you’re interested and attending one of the regionals below (or know of another team who would be), please let me know by emailing me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are the Regionals (chosen by geographic distribution):
Autodesk Oregon Regional
Silicon Valley Regional
Northeast Utilities Regional
North Carolina Regional
Michigan State Champ
I’ll talk to the team about doing this at MSC, though I’m a bit disappointed you’ve chosen no Michigan districts. Regardless, The New Cool is an excellent advertisement for FIRST, and I’m sure we as a team would be glad to join into this effort.
Killer Bees will for sure take on the Michigan State Championship. I’m always looking for things for a few of my punks to do between matches.
I’m already halfway through my copy of the book, and I love it.
Please trust that I’d love to send out bookmarks to every FIRST regional and district if I could, but I have a limited number (plus cost of shipping), which makes this prohibitive. Wish this wasn’t the case!
I know that the St. Louis regional is somewhat small this year (number of teams), but we are hosting the Championships the next month. We’d be glad to help at either the regional or Championship level if needed.
Team 48 would be happy to distribute these at Dorton Arena at the North Carolina Regional. It will give us a good excuse to visit other teams (and seek shelter from the blinding rising sun). Email sent.
