Before we start, we would just like to let you know that this blog post is not being written by any of our robots tonight. We are so glad that you have gotten to know and love them over the past few weeks! Tonight, both of our robots were fast asleep in the basement during our adventures, so we guess we'll have to tell you want happened ourselves.
Tonight was the annual Firebirds potluck dinner!! We all gathered together in celebration of build season's achievements and in anticipation of competition season's accomplishments. Our families, mentors, sponsors, and friends joined us for an exciting and memorable evening. We had a lot of tasty food to eat from fruit salad to meatballs and pasta to cupcakes to buffalo chicken dip to soft pretzels! Everyone had a really great time together. We made sure to take the time to thank everyone who helped us to soar throughout the year and recognize some stars on our team. Most importantly, we gave Robot and Brother their permanent names. We started off with a list of about 20 names and slowly narrowed it down to a few. Eventually, we decided on the names of Lumos and Nox for Robot and Brother respectively. In case you did not understand the reference, lumos is the wand-lighting charm in the Harry Potter series and nox is the wand-extinguishing charm.
We had so much fun tonight! We can't wait to see the next adventures from Lumos and Nox!
