I don't have any particular stories, but meeting a few people from Scioly throughout the weekend was quite fun. I also met quite a few teams (Brookwood, Teeland, Bearden) at King's Island. SO sorta invaded the place.

I would also say that I was very happy that my former middle and high school coaches were able to say the coach's oath, as they are both retiring this year.

I was the one wjo went right up to you and yelled stuff.

Point 14 on my Mission Possible checklist:

13. Make sure that the anti-gravity mechanism is installed properly. (Don’t want to collapse this dimension again)
14. Make sure you have all the needed materials. (Quarter, TSL, fire extinguisher, ect.)
15. Make sure to not forget the flip the switches, you may cause the anti gravity systems to not work properly.

I heard about that... thats really unfortunate :? . For our mission possible, the quarter had to be dropped on to a mousetrap. It missed. -100 points. And we misinterpreted the time... -~100 points. We were pretty sure it would medal, too.

Yeah, it really stinks, because havenbreadfish had spent an incredible amount of time on that mission possible, and had won every competition before Nationals. His partner was so nervous that he missed the mousetrap.

My friend almost missed the starting task as well: I was so close the judge said how close were were.

@Death Owl
Where did you see Japanese honeysuckle? I think you may have confused it with the also invasive Amur honeysuckle. Unlike the Japanese honeysuckle, the Amur is more shrubby and to my observation, lacks the nice fragrance.
