History of CDF?

I was just wondering the other day what the history of this site was?

When was it made?
Was it always big among FIRST?
Any early competitors?
Who was the one who made it?
Anything else of relevence anyone can think of. This is just what I thought of off the top of my head.

Go to the team site and click on ‘History’ on the left. There is a brief history of the team and has some info on the website. There is some more information on a story published on FIRST’s site.
