We lost the quarterfinals. We're out of the competition in our region.

At least there's still the Idaho regionals in two weeks.

Ohhhhhh, better luck skill next time!

4452044 It was partially due to a buggy software update that broke some of the controls on the robot.

Also, the motor for the rope winch blew out in the second to last round, so there's that.

At least we got a design award for literally having a silver box on wheels. Everyone else's robot was pretty much a conglomeration of plastic, metal, or glass. Except for the wooden robot. The high school down the road from mine built a wooden robot and managed to win the finals.

I wonder how well a concrete robot would do?

Damn... if it makes you feel any better I made like six cakes for school and they almost all messed up... the first cake fell on the floor at school during my science class, the second cake caught on fire due to the candles that I had brought, the third cake had a bug in it, the fourth cake was thrown out by my teacher because of no eating in class, the fifth cake fell on the floor and the sixth cake was the only cake that didn't mess up and everyone had a slice... except me... happy 40th birthday school!
