It was a great competition, and Eric Duda's crew of volunteers were amazing! The snow did not dampen the enthusiasm of the attending teams, who went all-out, all day. The level of competition was high, as was the gracious professionalism exhibited time after time.  As the coach of Team Unlimited, I would like to formally recognize the Gracious Professionalism of the Winning Alliance (Green Egg Robotics, Mustang Robotics and PATHS) for their infinite patience when we had a mechanical failure just before the final match. Allowing us the extra time to make the repair was greatly appreciated, and they certainly earned their victory!

Thanks to Pathfinder Regional Vocational Technical High School for hosting the Championship!
