Re: 3 Questions!!! (1/29/04)

1. 121

2. Oscar Meyer Wiener, probably because their sponsor was Oscar Meyer

3. Honeywell Microswitch and Freeport HS. They still compete and still call their robot Pretzelator, so the past tense isn't necessary

Re: 3 Questions!!! (1/29/04)

Today's answers...

1. Navel Undersea Warfare Center & Middletown High School (current team 121)

2. Oscar Meyer and Sherman High school had a robot in the shape of an Oscar Meyer Wiener. It was actually very entertaining during the awards ceremony when they won an award, and everyone started singing the Oscar Meyer Wiener song!

3. I did not know they still exsist, but Honeywell and Freeport HS are the Pretzelators.

Today's winner is Karthik! Good job.
