Interesting things you have seen

I want to know what are the most interesting things you guys have seen while competing or off season. For me it was when a team member from Andromeda one was dressed as and alien and stroked the pink windup bunny on my hard hat. (My teams mascot this year was a pink windup bunny named Jerry)

Re: Interesting things you have seen

During Worlds in St. Louis our pit was directly diagonal from 1796 and they had a stuffed tiger with a sparkly fedora. Not gonna lie but he was pretty styling.

Re: Interesting things you have seen

Last year (2016) at CAGE match in Indiana, there were some students from 1741 that made a drone (I think it had a camera...) out of big helium balloons, cardboard, string, and tiny fans. They seemed to have a fun time flying it around the competition.

I remember that! It wasn't too easy to control IIRC.

Re: Interesting things you have seen

I saw two people last year wearing old CRT TVs on their heads.

Sadly, I don't have a picture.

Re: Interesting things you have seen

Our first year, another team at the Northshore District Event brought a safety hedgehog. Yes, it was a live hedgehog. Yes, it had a tiny pair of polycarb safety glasses.

Re: Interesting things you have seen

I saw people passing around a giant sandwich to put buttons on this year in St. Louis. IIRC, it was for Michigan teams only, but the sandwich had to be like 3 feet long...

Yes her name was Sandy the Sandwich. It started when team 4003 TriSonics gave us 2 massive sandwiches and we could only really eat one, so we decided to put antenna on it and give it to 67 HOT. HOT then added a pin and a bottle cap that said 67 and it was given to 27 Rush and we told them to add something team related and give it to someone else. I don't quite remember who it got passed to from there on out but I saw it towards the end of the day and yes it had massive amounts of buttons and other team imagery items on it.

Overall it was a pretty good sandwich.
