Do we know the ceiling height of the atrium in the East Hall where Helicopters will be run? Any obstructions?

I believe coaches were sent information about this today - please check with them! They should have a picture of the room. However, for basic information: the room is quite tall (five floors, though I don't have the exact number on me). The ceiling is mostly flat in one large area (large ceiling tiles with a small amount of grout between them), but there are some obstructions outside of the main area - helicopters that fly a far distance left or right could potentially hit something. It will fortunately be very difficult for a helicopter to get stuck, however.

Helicopters looks like it is 4 stories from the pictures.

Wow... I don’t know much about Michigan but isn’t Ann Arbor winning quite an upset?

I manually stacked them and got 128 for Northville and 135 for Ann Arbor.

Yeah it's a fairly major upset. Northville has been doing unusually poorly this year.

Northville still got like 9 first places, even though they got second, so I’d still say they are pretty strong.

Regarding the competition itself, we hope everyone had fun yesterday - I know those of us running it did! We would certainly like to hear how you thought it went.
