Does breaking our plane mid competition and not having time to fix it so we just launch it as it is count for anything? (Our wings snapped off in ELG so we just launched the fuselage across the gym :/)

UNSTREET SMART
Got lost at the Cornell Invitational this year when coming back from Expi bc our team switched team rooms and had no way of telling us. So, I ended up walking into a different team's room, and didn't realize until a good 5 mins have passed that I was in the wrong room...overall it took us a good 45 mins to get back from Expi. And, on top of that, it was FREEZING. This ever happen to anyone else?
