Team 181, Birds of Prey, suffered the tragedy of loosing one of our volunteer engineers from Pratt & Whitney.  Michael McCoy was an invaluable part of the team for the last two years.   He headed up the drive team for two years in a row (1999-2000), whose ideas were modified and implemented in subsequent robot designs.  His dedication and enthusiasm was an inspiration to us all.  McCoy, you will forever be missed!
