Thanks to outstanding support from our island community and beyond we’ve made it to St. Louis to participate in the FIRST World Championship.  We have some time this morning so we are headed to see the famous Gateway Arch and to investigate Forest Park which was the site of the 1904 Worlds Fair and is one of the largest municipal parks in the United States.  Cool.  Now, we are eating breakfast across the table from a team from Israel.
