SA-HERO placed 15th!! This is spectacular! They were competing against 37 other teams. Most, if not all, the other teams have been to Worlds before, some multiple times and it is unheard of that a team with 4 members who have never done OM before make it to Worlds let alone place 15th. They also beat the team that beat them at State by 5 places (but no gloating, that's not the OM way :-) )
Their buddy team from Poland WON their division of Tag 'Em with an ingenious vehicle made from CD player parts and refrigerator light buttons. No one understood why a team from TX was jumping up and down and screaming when a team from Poland won.
Katie had a phenomenal time. She has thank you's to send (I just have to make sure she actually SENDS them) to everyone who helped her and her team out.
I'll give her a place to post about her experience here. We are currently on dial-up but as soon as our wireless is back-up I'll upload video of the Rube Goldberg machine and hopefully the video of their performance at World's will be on Youtube soon. I'll embed it here when it is.
Thanks again everyone....until next year......
