Coach on team #639, Red B^2, from Ithaca High School and Cornell University.
Just wanted to congradulate all the teams at the NYC competition, especially our fellow rookies! You all put in a tremendous effort into your robots, and the competition was great. What truly impressed me was in the finals. I heard, after the finals, members from both alliances wishing there had been a tie in that final match. The spirit at the competition truly was one of gracious professionalism, and everyone who attended deserves an applaud for that.
Keep up the great work. To those who are attending nationals, have a great time and good luck. To those who are not, hope to see you back next year with just as much enthusiasm. Our team will immediately begin searching for more permanant sponsors, and making demonstrations all around the community in hopes of spreading the spirit of FIRST.
Thanks for the great competition this weekend. I was proud to be a part of it.
