A long long time ago we were talking about having “Chief Delphi forums get together” at regionals beside just having the Web hug at Epcot.
We were going to have “scouts” at each regional to get people together, and set up a time and place that people can realistically attend. We were also thinking of designating someone to take pictures of robots at each regional and upload them…
Now we need to find the people to do this! It shouldn’t be too hard. Those of you who have been around for a while, and have been to a certain regionals in the past years should know the teams and know the posters in this forum.
We even had a small list of scouts going on:
So far we have “Scouts” and “Campfires” at the following regionals:
VCU–Richman–Pit 365–Brian Gattman
Seattle–Pit 64–Ken Loyd
Los Angeles–Pit 64–Ken Loyd
San Jose–Ken Leung
New England–Pit 121–Lora Knepper
So, who’s up for making little get together happening at regionals?
Also, I have this idea inspired by the Gila Monsters last year.
At the southern california regional last year, the Gila monsters have this competition black ball going around getting teams to sign it. I didn’t remember about it until one of their member IMed and told me he saw my signature on the ball. And I thought, what a great idea.
So, this year, what I am thinking of is that at each regional, we have a soccer ball going around being signed by teams. We would try to get as many teams to sign it as possible, and as many regional as we can get it done. It shouldn’t be too hard to get one of those soccer balls, and they are not expensive neither.
It would be really cool if at the Epcot web hug we can get all those soccer balls together. Imagine when we pull this off and have 17 soccer balls filled with signatures from teams across the country…
What do you think?
