Had we made it there was a possibility we were going to take a train... either that or a bus. But we're pretty close to Illinois. I'm not sure what the schools that made it from KS are doing.

...we're taking vans. One bus doesn't seem very logical if different people need to be different places. Last year we flew and then got cars. That worked well. Builders left in one car on Friday to go to a school for testing, others went other places.

Wait...its on campus. For state we were walking around and made it in time fine...maybe nats is a more spread out area. Weird though, 84 teams total B and C for state, only 60 at nats. Hmm...i guess its just easier to drive. Wes too poor.

For Augusta we actually drove to a high school to practice, couldn't get practice time on campus when we wanted.
