I want to make a public announcement on behaf of my team (Merrimack 166). We have had many problems this year, severe money problems, communication issues, and engineer troubles to name a few. We had some amazing people this year, our two engineers Jim and Dave really pulled it together in the last week and a half and our machine shop guy Rudy let us trash his shop and totally take over for 6 weeks. Unfortunatly our problems got worse and by monday we barely had a working machine. I just wanted to let everyone know that Nashua/Sanders 155 really saved our collective butt. They truly embody the sprit of FIRST, allowing us to use their tools, playing space, engineers, time, and making us parts at 11 o’clock at night. I thought they deserved more than a thank you from my team alone. To the defenders of the greater good, just take this as a thank you from every team you guys have ever helped. We are looking forward to cheering with you in the stands and we love you all.
