      Wow indeed. That's a great extension of the idea. We could even
      make a coded ribbon identifying the club, sort of like the
      silver or gold band, followed by their three band rating in that

      (Like I was saying to a friend) imagine a conversation between a
      couple guys talking robotics:
      A: "I'm a newbie. So where are you in robotics building"
      B: "Oh, I'm a SRS Yellow Red Brown and a Chibots Green Brown
      A: "Wow, you travelled to more than one club! How cool!
      B: "Yep, kid, says so right here in my coded ribbons"
      A: "Oh, is that what those ribbons mean? Wow. Tell me how to
      read them."
      A: "And what are their contests like in that other club?"
