Our team (team Road Runner) had a blast- they were an all new rookie  
team- so our expectations were to check it all out- I agree- all was  
very well run- thank you to everyone involved at Maggie Walker.   
because our team switched robots and plans multiple times- and we were  
a new team- we only had two missions completed prior- they were able  
to make both happen at the table, so they were happy- we had better  
consistency at school.  I think they all want to do it again next  
year.  I was proud of our team for their first go round- and it was  
really fun to watch all the teams! Did anyone do the bridge? I never  
saw it?  Laura Dysart:) Have fun for those teams next weekend!!
Are there any classes or groups to help new coaches learn some of the  
more advanced programming- not to "tell the kids" what to do- but to  
have the knowledge to ask the questions and guide them. Our programs  
were very basic- which again, I think fine for a first year team- they  
had a fun attachment. The tutorials helped me only so much. I'd like  
to definitely line up a mentor and another coach for our team next  
year in advance.  My team would like to keep meeting to play around  
with the programming and the robot.
