We were helped by a father-and-son duo who was there just to help people. In no time our robot was up and running. We passed all three inspection stations (with a little turbulence) and competed with the best of them.


Unfortunately our whole team wasn’t there to experience the magic of perseverance and dedication AND I plan to archive these experiences so that all will be able to benefit in some way. To the discouraged in any venue, DON’T GIVE UP!
