Ok. So we got 2nd place of 105 teams. Good Job boys! We went last June for their test of the facility and we got 10th of 10. So major improvement over the last 2 months. Next up is the International Tour. We will go to seven states in the USA and 16 other countries.

We will spend 3 more days in NY, 1 day in CT, 4 in IL, 1 in IA, 3 in CO, 4 in NV, and 2 in CA. We rented a van for the boys. Parents... Take flights. The reason we are driving is because the boys had a unanimous decision to take roads until we go international.
