A moment I won't forget is going to the "Those moments you will never forget" thread, to post something that happened today, and seeing this:

That made me a little curious. I apparently have 90 top three finishes, of which 51 are gold. I wasn't expecting to find out that I had quite so many...

Here's a few personal favorites:

-The feeling you get when you tie with your rivals at a tournament... but you win due to having more firsts! (Regionals 2017)
-Soloing an event and nearly winning it. (2018)
-The team bonding moments - trips to invitationals/nationals, helping teammates out, being friends outside of partners. (2016-present) This will never get old.

That one time me and my partner couldn't figure out why our device wasn't working in roller coaster at centerville, and we never got a successful run in. It still haunts me to this day and is part of the reason why I loathe rollercoaster

Also that time at Nats where our coaster screwed up again but we were able to fix it cause its you know, nats; but that's a story for another time
Ok this is epic 8-)

oh and the best one, (we get to choose team names for invites)

old 2017 meme but here it goes

our ff teams are good, well like no duh cuz 1st at nats, so we got cocky and decided to do a meme. making the 2nd place a meme and the 1st place team a response to that meme.

so it went like this:

2nd place from Highlands, team WHERE IS THE LAMB SAUCE?
*some laughter*

*announcer sighs heavily*

and in 1st place from Highlands, team LAMB SAUCE LOCATED

*announcer turns off mic and stares at them*
*entire cafeteria goes nuts*
*doesn't stop laughing until 2 events after*

i didnt even care that i didnt medal, that legit made my entire month.

We were on the highway coming back from our tournament (it was a total 2 hour drive), but there was a car crash. Like a very big car crash. A truck completely rammed over a car. It smelled like smoke and there were SWAT teams and sirens all over the place. Immediately, there was a bunch of traffic. We were stuck on the road for 8? 9? hours. We ended up getting home at like 4 am. Funny thing is that there were 2 kids who really needed to use the bathroom, and all of us were starving and dehydrated. Fun thing was that it was social time for a lot of us. When we stopped at the gas station after we were released from the traffic, literally HALF OF THE TEAM bought JUGS OF WATER. When I mean jugs, I mean like MULTIPLE GALLONS. It was SOO funny.
