What was your heat retention Alex? Ours without bonus was around 1.9 I think.

Ice water would only need to be 38 or higher to beat this, which should be pretty easy.

Actually, our final temperature was only 34.5. It’s possible our device simply wasn’t very good (and yours definitely was).

Congrats on 2nd!

The test at nats was over three times as long and much more difficult than at state. Even with that, though, it still was manageable under time constraints. :)

Yeah, it was pretty hard. We didn’t come close to finishing.

Did anyone have results significantly affected by High Altitude? Something we had not accounted for

The History section on the Nats test was a lot more difficult than I was expecting.
