we have heard enough about that this season already, from T3 controls to this now. Let’s leave these comments in our own minds please. Theres nothing to say that wildstang’s team did not work as hard as any other FIRST team in the world. Remember what Dean Kamen keeps repeating, this was never meant to be fair.
If you have the resources to accomplish something, then by all means use them. Its not up to anyone anywhere to decide who warrants having x amount of money spent on them.
btw, i love the couch and seminar area to the back! makes great seating for sponsorship/media days! lol
wow, really awesome job you guys did. That field looks darn near perfect.
Thanks Cory, the team of parents & students who built the field put many hours of hard work into it and took pride in their creation. They were there almost every night during the build season.
ok the field is really nice but what is with that giant stuffed shrimp thing in the background on a 2002 goal?
I think it’s actually some bubble wrap, but I wish it was a giant stuffed shrimp, that would be more fun to play with.
i love the couch and seminar area to the back!
Wish we had a couch
Yea, those were some great finds. We’re fortunate to have our playing field in the middle of a warehouse where Motorola stores surplus office supplies. So we grabbed a bunch of chairs and we even found a nice couch. We thought we’d get more use out of it than we actually do.
I love the surface of the upper platform. Very classy.
Thanks Jim. The same guy who made our crate (professional cabinet maker parent of a student on our team) milled out the center platform at his shop and spray painted by hand to get the tie-dye pattern. He definately went above & beyond what any of us expected.
We actually run an organized event. On the Sunday before ship we always invite all the Chicago area teams to our field for some organized practice. We also open up our field to other teams for informal practices throughout the season.
Great playing field guys. One question; Your pipes are amazingly straight, how’d you do it? The pipes on our full sized playing field are wobbly, crooked and bent. After only a couple of days of human player practice the pipe was horribly out of shape.
Are you talking about the PVC pipes that make up the goal? I don’t think we did anything particularly special with those pipes, but they are anchored near the top of the surface and also at the bottom of the platform (near the carpet).
