Going to many FIRST event I have encountered Dr. Flowers numerous times at events. This is the last photo I ever took of him watching the round robin matches on Einstein in Detroit at a great vantage point.

So here’s an idea. Could there be some kind of sticker sort of thing similar to Mark Leon, so we can slap it on our robots?

We were lucky enough that Dr. Flowers came by our pit to speak with us at Windsor District Event this year. He really inspired us to do well.

Lucky me and Woodie when he came to Brazil in 2014, I was so shocked of having Woodie taking breakfast by my side. At that point he was a legend to me, than I could realize how human and kind he was.


5 years later me and Woodie this year during Championship.

I am happy for the moments I could share. He will be really missed.

The video of the slideshow is posted on youtube. I made a mistake and we don’t have a recording of Paul Copioli and I speaking at the event.

So some sort of sticker along the lines of “Woodie Flowers”/“In Honor of Woodie Flowers” and a picture?

yeah, like Mark Leon has “Do the Math, Save the World”, and Woodie preaches on Gracious Professionalism so… “Always Remember to be a Gracious Professional”?
