Congratulations to you and LB and BB. Can’t go wrong with the 2 best teams. I broke our kids container on the way to Regionals. Luckily they were able to fix it in the parking lot before competition. Missed a wire disconnected until the competition started and the container wouldn’t go. The boys were smart enough to figure it out and fix it quickly. Still had time to add enough weight to break the structure at 225. They did good in all categories and came in first place, so we’ll see you at State. One competitor had an accident and broke their structure as it traveled to the crusher board. Not the way I wanted to win though. I’m sure that team will not repeat their mistake at State. Ramey also placed first. Looking forward to Division III competition, it should be awesome. Four of the best teams I know competing. See you next month! We have a few structures to build between now and then.
