Towers was the worst hands down. Especially when it’s your first build event and you spend hours trying to figure it out before watching it be crushed before your eyes in a matter of seconds :cry: .

Least favorite: politics behind the scenes at SO; no reason for it-petty, unwarranted & inexplicable. Those in key positions can be straight forward and nice! Most who volunteer are not looking to usurp others. Respect, now that's a great value don't you think? Counting pennies? Aren't we all! SO mission statement should extend to the conduct of those involved in all aspects of SO in NY& also in each state. Those in key positions have no need to be petty. 'Nuff said, carry on!
