A Luck Stone employee brought her daughter to VCU to see the team her mom helped sponsor. She was just staring at the robot, when one of the students asked her if she knew how it worked. After a quick demo, she started playing catch with the robot. She must have caught and thrown a moon rock into the hopper 30 times before we had to prep for the next match. The look on her face told me what we did this year was worth it. Is this young lady a future Junkyard Dog? I hope so!
