Well.
CONGRATULATIONS, EVERYONE!!!!!

I love colors, don't you? :P

We (Gelinas) didn't do so badly, considering the things that happened xD
This year, the whole year, didn't go as well as it did last year, the year before, and the year before that, but y'know. There's always next year. I mean, this was kind of expected.
9th ->10th ->11th :P
We just have to be optimistic. And not just Gelinas, guys D: YOU TOO.
YOUUUUUU TOOOOOOO.
DON'T FORGET >:U

And really, congratulations to everybody :3
Again o-o
I love you all, even thogh I don't know you xD
I love everyone in Science Olympiad, DAWWWWWWWW <33

We, in 11th place, were only 6 points behind the 10th place team, and only 8 points behind Eagle Hill :D (we had, again, some unexpected bombs, so I wouldn't be calling off the question of who's the more competitive NY team just yet... you can see for yourself how close it was).
when u say "unexpected bombs" what do you mean?
and well the dabate over wether or not Eagle hill or Gelinas is better won't really affect us will it?
We will all be on division C next year
Well, for example, our Robo-Cross robot burned out the night before and we had to use our Sumo-Bot with a shovel glued to the front... so we ended up getting 55th in that.
True, it doesn't affect us directly, but I can't say I won't harbor some Gelinas loyalty even once I'm at WM :D
you're lucky you even brought the sumo bot and that it fit the spces

We didn't bring the Sumo-Bot. It was driven up the night before comp by a parent. They did quick modifications to get it in specs.

Yeah... technically he didn't leave the night before comp. He left the day before comp and got there late that night.
