It’s been a few weeks since we’ve started to contact the Chicago regional’s teams. This way, we will already know a few teams (and maybe have a few American friends) at the competition. For the moment, we’ve met the 1625 Winnovation, the 2338 Gear it Forward and the 5847 Ironclad. We would like to thank them a lot by the way!
We were able to ask them multiple questions on the regional, about accomodation and places to absolutely visit. They were very nice and gave us a lot of good advice!
We offered to bring them a souvenir from Lyon, and they looked very enthusiastic! We spent a really great time together and we laughed a lot with them! We even created a Discord in order to talk with each other frequently!
Talking with these American teams was a very rewarding experience because we had the opportunity to speak English with them (which was really funny because, as Frenchies, we don’t have a really good reputation in English…). And we started to become friends! We can’t wait to see them again!
We are looking forward to meeting you for real at the competition and thank you very much for the time we spent together!
