The FRC Staff

Last night FIRST had its annual holiday celebration.  It was a rare chance for us to get together as a group, have some dinner, and have a little fun.  Dean was there, and spoke briefly about the importance of our mission, and our part in making it happen.  It was a wonderful evening, all the way around.

On my way home – after my normal bedtime, by the way – I was thinking about the FRC Staff.  You probably don’t know most of them.  Here are their names, in no particular order:

FIRST Choice

Today’s post is a guest blog from Kate Pilotte, FRC’s Kit of Parts Manager:

Last week I asked Frank if I could borrow his platform to talk about the opening of FIRST Choice, the issues we experienced when it opened, and what’s happened since.

I apologize for the problems teams experienced using FIRST Choice today.  The FIRST Choice site will remain down until we have corrected the issues we have found.  We are working to correct those issues, and will have an update shortly.
