A coworker brought this geeky wedding video to my attention Monday and with the groom’s permission I am posting it here. Mark and Christine exchanged their marriage vows during a break in the competition at the 2009 FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Midwest Regional. It takes a very special woman to agree to get married during a robotics competition, let alone in the middle of the arena (though her armband reads "Official Scorer," so it couldn’t have been that alien a place for her). I’d like to take a moment and congratulate Mark on finding an understanding wife and wish them both the very best of luck and (if it’s in their plans) a geeklet or two in due time.
For more information about FIRST and the 2009 competition see the FIRST website. And for the record, the Lunacy logo is for this year’s FRC season, and is therefore not commentary on Mark and Christine’s wedding.
