Team Came, Saw and did well with challenges

The team placed well overall against the best in the world. This year they are in Division II, which is essentially the junior high school division because there are 6th graders on the team. Because of this they are competing against teams that are older and have more experience, but regardless they scored well, placing 31st while competing against 76 teams in the division. There were outmatched in some areas such as quality of props and skit, but a major contributing factor was balsa tower issues related to humidity. It was raining on competition day and water absorption contributed poor performance and scoring of their structure. But to be fair, other teams were facing the same issue with the humidity. The most weight held by any team in the division was 860 lbs. Normally at least one team achieves 1000 lbs or more.

Much more to come as soon as soon as we can get all the pictures and video collected…
