While an early match was underway, Grant Imahara came over to strategize with our teams.  When his match came up, he called for the driver from team 13 (Patrick) to come up into his alliance.  The alliance won all their matches through the end, and Patrick was fortunate enough to win an HP iPod at the end of the evening!

Walking back to the hotel, we had a chance to think about what a great experience the FIRST Vex Challenge had been for all of us.  We look forward to being able to continue with this program as our team members head into Sharon High School next year, and feel very fortunate at having been able to contribute and participate in this demonstration season.

We'll see you on the field!
