What is your weirdest tournament experience? I’ll repost mine as the first entry.
Okay, story time cause I don’t know where else to put this. I was helping judge a tournament today, and needed to run some skills matches. We had a younger team, maybe 3rd grade with one older team member running a match. About halfway through the match, one of the third graders reaches down to grab their bot, and pulls out a ball from their intake. I ask him to please but the ball down and I ask their team to reset their bot. To my utter bafflement, he starts licking the ball! Like, what the heck?? I ask him to put it back and he does, but then like 20 minutes later he comes back to steal another ball and he keeps licking it!! We try an ask him to put it back, but then he just runs away! We almost lost the ball until his mom comes up, grabs him, pulls out a bottle of spray hand sanitizer and sprays the ball. Then she pulls out a water spray bottle and spritzes him in the face. Weirdest tournament ever!
