Big thanks to @Breakaway3937 for hosting this event again this year. This is always a fun event and would recommend to anybody looking for an off-season event.
Skills challenges are a lot of fun!
Looking forward to next year.
Thanks again to Brian and all the good people at 3937.

Agreed on all counts. I know the 323 students were super excited to pick you guys, it’s always nice to work with neighbors. Hope we can work together in the future.

I want to thank everyone for attending another great year of the Ozark Mountain Brawl. The Skills Challenge results are up on our website, and we will be cutting video and posting the matches to our youtube channel by the end of this week.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year! Good luck in 2020 Infinite Recharge.

This was such a great event for my team. With two robots it was a lot of work but we were able to get new people working on the field. The skills challenge was great fun. Great practice to shake out the robots to make sure they are ready for the comp. Can’t wait for 2020. As far as the 323 &16 team up. An all Mt Home alliance is trouble for everyone else. Two great teams with really good robots. Great examples that inspire all of Arkansas
