Before I was on the team, we apparently got 3rd because we were DQ'd from one event. The worst part - the reason we were DQ'd was our bottle rocket had a transparent light blue bottle instead of a clear bottle.

Worst for me:Taking 6th place in Road Scholar at state in '05 when we had the answer key in our resources
Worst for me:Missing 3rd place in Road Scholar at regionals in '07 by one question about a saddle

Best for me:Gold in WIDI at the invite this year
Best for me:Silver in WIDI at state '07(i thought i pigeon this up)

Worst for team:Missing qualifying for state in '08 buy 1-2 points

Best for team:5th place at regionals in '05. This was my first year on the team and the MS best placing yet, funny thing is that half ot our team wasn't even there to go recive the trophie

Best thing for me would be medaling in all of my events at State in 08 (EV 1st, RR 1st, Boom 3rd). Worst thing... having to kick someone off of the team.. :o

Being my first year I don't have much, but:
Best: My team never getting below fourth and I through some miracle placed first in Crave the Wave at Regionals
Worst: Seeing my teammate completely mess up on trajectory with the awesome catapult we built together (my dad's a carpenter, se we have tools; his last catapult fired diagnally and was held together by glue) at Regionals

EDIT: New best: My shiny 5th place Crave the Wave States medal
New worst: Having Wright Stuff go all wrong and getting a 1:12 flight out of my 2 minute plane :(
