Re: Elevated Bridge 2009

That's about where I am, pretty much all of my breaks have been from one side of the bridge sheering off of the other, resulting in one side completely destroyed and the other in perfect condition.

Re: Elevated Bridge 2009

3 days? that's nothing, you can talk about cramming when you start your first of four building events at 9 o'clock the night before a invite/regionals/state. Or when you are building a tower in your hotel room the night before state.
