Re: New York 2010

NOT 5th AGAIN!!!!
I feel exactly the same as you, just replace 5th with 6th. We definitly did better this year, but I'm still amazed that 3 teams got under 200. Congrats to everyone, it was an amazing year.

Re: Junkyard Challenge B

in junkyard challange, with the mousetraps and golf ball do they measure the trapes from the closest side, in the center of the trap or on the far side? :roll:

So we are about to have a face off at our school to see who competes in this event at regionals, and the other team is doing pretty well. The only problem is is that they have tied all of their mousetraps together (N ...
