No we had to struggle to hear. Slides with each place and school were new.

Oh, so if Harold Miller has always read the places for C Division, maybe we don't have to worry about it... because apparently he's very hard to understand. Even though the guy who read for B Div for the past two years has some issues with pronouncing "Gelinas", at least you can hear what he's saying, which is kind of important when you're trying to figure out who has to go up to get the medals.

Tom Lewis has done it for several years for B division, but I think you guys are going to get Harold this year.

If you find out your Junkyard height, I would really appreciate it if you would post it. I strongly suspect that the guy second tiered us after promising not to, twice.

Oh, fantastic. Are we going to have a powerpoint too (although I don't know where they'd project it in that gym), or are we just going to have to struggle to hear?

Yeah, the problem is, there really isn't any place for a projector or a screen in the gym at New Paltz where the award ceremony is held.

Our figures were 80 cm height, $4.83 sorted, 15 bonus seconds.

I heard they second tiered people with lengths longer than 50 cm. That's ridiculous; nowhere does it say that in the rules.

And haha i don't think you should worry about whether you can hear Mr. Miller. I know Gelinas does well and all and so it's not going to change the score.
