The Lego Guards: Forest Guard team and Coach Heidi at the North American Premiere screening in Auburn, California.
By Andrew Wood
On Saturday March 27, the North American Premiere of the Forest Guard Documentary was held in Auburn at the auditorium of Placer High School. We had a lot of fun and everyone that I talked to enjoyed it.
Special guests were: Jill Wilker of Playing at learning, John Keitel (a director of the film), and Dr. Graham Kent, UNR.
Dean Kamen, the founder of FIRST, inventor of the Segway, the insulin pump, and many other amazing inventions, had filmed an address to the team, which was also shown.
The team actually dressed up for once, which was interesting to see. This event was 'the end of one thing, and the beginning of another' as Heidi so elequently states in the documentary.
The team: Faith, Andrew, Aydan, Drew, Bobby & Alejandro
