Making Friends! :-)

Hey y’all! I’m from Hackensack New Jersey! We’re a third year team and this is our year. We’ve got new recruits (so to speak) and the wonderful Dr. VanEkrit (sp SORRY!! I’m the programmer, not a publisist! hee hee). Some of you may remember her if you’re in the New Jersey area, she helped several other teams. What I’d like to do I just meet people, make friends. It’d be cool to meet up at the kick off or competition!
Post some tips, pointers for new teams, or just make conversation. Gah, you know what to do here. I’m the newbie! :stuck_out_tongue:

Hi! I’m Andrew, a programmer from team 357 from Upper Darby. Nice to meet you and welcome!

Welcome! ChiefDelphi is a great place and we are willing to help you with any of your problems/questions/etc. (just make sure to use search first).

BTW, I know where Hackensack is…my dad works for a division of Mars. :wink:

Nice to meet you guys! I’m so glad I got some replies. Thanks for your support, but coastertux… I have to say I’ve no clue what Mars you are talking about hee hee! Is it the Mars Candy people :confused: ?? I’m sorry lol.
Hey, I’m a stupent :stuck_out_tongue: .

Welcome to the forum redragon226. :slight_smile:

I’m originally from Wanaque, NJ. I have family still in Maywood, Totawa, Little Falls, and Wayne.

Hi, I’m anna out of Michigan. Off topic quesion, here–do you know if Morristown or Randolph (NJ) have teams yet? We used to live there and I just wondered. Anyhoo–welcome to FIRST!!

Welcome reddragon226!

I don’t have family in NJ, but that’s OK. I used to live in Ithaca, NY. That is close enough, right?

Welcome to FIRST! Go to the webhug if you attend championships. It’s a great way to meet people from the forums, as well as make new friends.

Yep, that’s the Mars Candy people (they make most of their candy in Hackensack). I also used to live in Marlton (right by Cherry Hill and Medford).

This is Andrew from CRT 306,

Welcome to the party! Never been to New Jersey, but Bharat lives there, and my uncle used to live in Cherry Hill. Thats almost 1 point for me!!!

I think you’ll find CD (thats short for ChiefDelphi :wink: ) is very friendly, especially for a forum. Probably because most of us will meet up at one point or another, so theres incentive not to be a jerk:p .

Hackensack? Isn’t that what the Norse Vikings did :smiley:

My uncle lives in Secaucus, NJ

Welcome to the wonderful world of FIRST. We are here to help. Ask us anything and we will have an answer. It may not be the right answer though :ahh:

I lived in New Jersey when I was 4. I don’t remember which town but I remember it had hills (isn’t most of Jersey flat?). We only lived there for about two months and then we moved to Upstate New York. The only other thing I remember about NJ was that the hospital was on a hill and from the room I was in (I ate a bunch of pills that I thought were candy and ended up in the hospital for a few days) I could look down over the city, which was very prettily lit up. Well, anyhow, welcome to the forums! Most of us only bite if it is requested.



I am Ashley, and I love making new friends. *
Anyways, I am from team 1511 located in NY.

Welcome to the best thing since… well, welcome to the best thing :stuck_out_tongue: and if you ever have any questions feel free to conact me in any way. :slight_smile:


The understatement of the century.

Dragon welcome to ChiefDelphi, i think that you will find that this is a great place to meet people. If you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask. (although I doubt someone named dragon has many fears)

Haha, THANKS GREG! :stuck_out_tongue:
