Well i have been posting on CD little over a year. I have met many people online and in person. Mostly Florida people such as george, mike, nathan, andrew, Tytus and the list can go on. Last year 710 did not qualify for nationals so i didnt get to meet alot of the people i would like to meet. So i have composed a list of people that over the year i have posted that i learned to repsect and listen to what they say, because they know what they are talking about. At nationals i hope to complete the task of meeting most of these people and taking a picture with them. Well here is the list (no particular order), I dont know if all these people are going to nats i hope they are. But if i come up to you and ask for a picture dont think iam crazy, just want a picutre of my “CD idols”
JVN (hope he wont hurt me after i suggest coloring constest of his pic) :ahh:
I cant wait to nationals i hope to meet all you guys, feel free to come over to 710 pits and say hi, and me and StudmanDan are planning on going to the webhug
Yeah. There are definitely several people that have gained my respect. So called FIRST demi-gods that would definitely be worth meeting but then again last year I got to shake Dean and Woody’s hand in front of everyone. That was awesome. I at least didn’t wash the hand for several days. I’m planning on going to some of the workshops (college FIRST and pneumatics…oh yeah!.) and some of the presenters would be great to meet. One a side note I talked with two dean’s of my college yesterday and they were quite interested in the program. So I might have to step up my efforts to get FIRST here.
I would enjoy meeting most people on this forum. I should have been more proactive when I was at St. Louis aka Prank Monkeys -amanda , Apple Corps - katie, and cooney robotics - ricky, and probably others.
This years webhug is starting to sound like it will be really good. I’ve never actually made it to one before seeing as how I was always driving the robot during them in 02 and 03. When anyone meets John, be sure to ask for a 229 button, you may get lucky (or horribly terrified) and get one with his face on it
In any case, I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again in Atlanta this year, should be a great time.
P.S. - Be warned, DJ is an interesting person to drive with in large groups.
I’m flattered but make sure to put a gap between the Koko and the Ed.
Look for the large group of black and red tie dye and look to the back of the group and I’ll most likely be sitting back there with my wife if I’m not (poorly) videotaping a match.
See you in Hotlanta!
Ok I guess I’m not good enough. Why am I not on anyone’s list? I too have my own list including but not limited to:
DJ Fluck (should have met him in Chicago but didn’t have the time)
John V Neun
Pit Bull 1126 (Talk to him all the time on AIM)
Budda (Hold on that’s me)
Sorry I have a very bad memory.
I’m sorry to say that I will not be at the Championship. Perhaps next year. There’s hope that our team will be going to IRI (provided that they have it again) but it’s only talk at this time. But if you want to talk or whatever, I’m always only a PM away.
