We’ve made arrangements with the Verizon Wireless Arena, WGIR and WGIN to broadcast the Granite State FIRST Robotics Regionals from Manchester, NH live! There’s a couple more hurdles to jump, but it shouldn’t be too hard. I guess that means — we’re on.
You’ll be able to listen live from anywhere in the world at http://wgiram.com and we’ll try and post a recording of the regionals a week or so after they air. In years past we’ve had people in Iraq and Afghanistan listening (my guess is it’s some of our troops) and from a couple of dozen other countries.
Pass this information around as widely as possible. Let Parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents and friends know that they can listen live to the coverage of the event along with commentary and interviews with teams, officials and sponsors of the event.
Also, don’t forget to thank WGIR and WGIN for carrying the event and for their technicians and on-the-air talent for volunteering their time. We hope to have Charlie Sherman, Angela Anderson and Erin Boss helping out me, Craig Peterson, again this year!
This is going to be a great game this year. You can find out more by going to http://www.usfirst.org/
