I did not see any teams try to move the green bins into safety during any
of the official rounds. After the official rounds, as a demonstration, we
paired up Squirt the Turtle (USA) with Universal Serial Bus (Japan).
Universal Serial Bus was able to deliver two of the green bins to the
transfer and Squirt the Turtle picked them up and brought them back to
their safety. This created the 1000+ score (I believe it was 1031 during
the demonstration match).

There were two teams that came to my table and I was just a spectator for
the entire time: Universal Serial Bus (Japan) and Mechatronic Ants (Spain).
At the end of both of their matches, I just said "wow" and high-fived the
teams before scoring their table.

Most importantly, *all* of the teams had FUN! When you see these scores and
watch these videos, please do not be intimidated by what you see. FLL teams
compete at all different levels. You and your team should strive to be
better and be proud of what you can accomplish.

Enjoy the off season. We'll see you next year, if not sooner.

Bill

PS: If you did not know, the head referees for the 2016 FLL World Festival
were "Virginia's Own" Steve Scherr and Karen Berger.
