Snow, ice and general bad weather was the problem.

The Chief did well. Many mechanical bugs were eliminated but kept coming back.
We fought hard and kept the Chief on the court.
We placed 26 out of 33 teams in the qualifier of 10 matches.
We were very fortunate to be chosen by a great team that had confidence in
our ability to keep the Chief in operation.
Team 269 Bru-Quest you are the greatest.

We won the quarter finals, two straight wins, and replayed the last match due to an r-net prob.
We moved on to the semi-finals. Lost two matches, our machine was being held together by tie-wraps.
The nice new fiberglass body was smashed, we fried a motor but we played on to the end.
Our alliance partner was 7th seed and did a super, super effort. You would not think they were a rookie team.

The Chief will be better soon. See you all in Philly.
