2014 Kick-off EventJanuary 4, 2014
The 2014 Challenge has been released and it is Aerial Assist. As always, the task is challenging. This year the game makers have put an extreme emphasis on teamwork within the alliances. All teams will be, I am sure, looking to be able to throw the 24" diameter ball, as well as retrieve it from the floor, and catch it, as well. Good luck to all teams, and looking forward to competing with you.
Some Recent NewsNovember 3, 2013
As many of you know the Tucson Tussle, which we competed in, took place on November 2nd at Sonoran Science Academy. In the competition we were the third seeded team, and chose Teams 1726 the N.E.R.D.S., and 3944, the All Knight's to be our alliance members. Our alliance placed second in the The Tucson Tussle out of 12 competing teams from all over Arizona.
Many people from our team attended the Tucson Tussle and overall they thought it was a lot of fun. Jake Hoppe recalled that, "This year, the Tussle was more of a competition than in previous years." The Tucson Tussle was a good practice environment for future competitions, especially for those who have yet to go to a competition.
"Next year, if there is another Tucson Tussle, I will definitely try to participate again," Kenny Schackart said. The other members enjoyed the Tucson Tussle as well, and look forward to going again next year.
