Please do not take my opinion as questioning the game, its intent, or the effort and time it takes to create this challenge as negative.

Perish the thought. :)

I appreciate feedback on the game, good or bad, even if you did have something "bad" to say about the game.

Danny- Great job with the challenge this year. It is hard to judge; but it actively involves all team members and makes them learn to think under pressure. All of my robotic students have become better this year due to the challenge.

About the Pillar Penalty- My teams used this in some of our practice meets, but as they progressed time became a huge factor. And they decided not to leave something up to chance such as conversation about the penalty with a ref which could take up time or the time it would take for the ref to move the pieces, etc. When most programs this year are coming down to seconds... this was a deciding factor.

There are so many factors to this year's challenge; that we are still finding ways we can do things differently to improve. Definitely keeps it interesting. :)

See you at State!
