(Building 19 is a Boston area retail store that sells salvage, close-outs, and general left-overs. Yes, they had several boxes of them, still in plastic wrap, at the Norwood store, including a few with the -ahem- non-profit organization’s name on them.)
It’s a cool store to poke around if you’ve got the time. They recently did a closeout of a science teacher supply store and I had a blast looking at all the beakers, dioramas, etc.
However, I have this annoying unconscious habit of showing up at Building 19 on the 19th of the month, which is “Building 19 Day” - during its grand fiesta of all that is Building 19. I only realize that I’ve walked in *again *on the 19th once I’m in the store.
(For you CT-ites, Building 19 is the equivalent of Ocean State Job Lot, with more amusing advertising.)
The write up on the tubes is priceless. Apparently whatever organization this was had a water game. Perhaps FIRST should look into this organization’s implementation of such a competition and work on finally giving the FIRST community what it wants, a water game. Does anyone know which organization they are talking about? This seems like just the type of thing that L.A.S.T. (Lunatics Against Science and Technology) might try to pull off.
You know the season (and practically your part-time high school career) is over when you first were thinking about graduation, and then pondering what you are going to do with those two years at community college… struggling to make time to leave the team some notes on what to do to make the team better.
I tell you this much: it sort of sucks to be a graduated senior from a robotics team that you had so much fun with over 4 years, and saw grow from your freshman year. tear
[size=2]Otherwise, I must say, welcome to the 2007-2008 FLL, FVC, and FRC season folks. It’s game time!
