True that, I'm looking forward to seeing some cool ideas today.

Re: First Day of Worlds

I feel weird posting this the next day....but did anyone see the Middle school team (it was over by Inspection) that when it was lifted all the way, it was over 40 inches from the bottom of the treads on the basket to the ground?
