A missing team member

Re: TEAMwork: UofC Solar at NASC 2K5 by Chris Tait

[While reading this article,] I noticed one glaring omission. Here is my piece on the one individual whose story wasn’t told:

He was supposed to be the team’s embedded reporter but soon became the team’s indentured servant. As the only team member on the racing team without a driver’s license, Gauntlet Reporter Chris Tait became the go-to-guy for every task no one else wanted to do. Whether it’s guarding the solar array with no shade under the Texan sun or being volunteered to wake up every morning at 5 a.m. for charging array setup, Chris was always curiously cheerful. Just don’t try to reach him on the phone–he’s impossible to get a hold of.
