This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
My robotics team won another event this past Saturday. As I've babbled on before, I coach several robotics team and the one that was competing was team 4976, which is made up of middle school aged scouts from my son's Boy Scout Troop. They're competing is a High School lever competition so it pretty tough for them. Well until last saturday because they won. The first picture shows the team (on the right) with their alliance mate after winning the Marriotts Ridge Qualifier. Doing so has given them an invitation to the Maryland state championship. My other team (3113, which my son captains) has already qualified so I'll have two teams in the state championship in three weeks.
Here's a shot of the drive team, their all 12 or 13 years old and showed great poise in a tough competition.
The last photo is a shot of the alliance after the last match. Saturday was a great day and I think the best quote came from one of my scouts who was asked by a someone from another team in a bit of a mocking way "What do you guys hope to do here?" His reply with out missing a beat "Kick High-Schooler Butt!"
They did a great job and now we have a three week dash to get ready for states!
