Entire weekend was amazing, probably better atmosphere then the Nationals and seeing so many amazing displays. costumes and game performances under one roof. Congratulations to all and recording 207 score Team 3070, Vienna Robotics and to X-Bots for 201.While the kids were competing, there was another game (Scheduling) was played in the pit area to find next available time slot. Every ten minutes 12 table slots would fill within a second. Hopefully the Harrisonburg HS Key club volunteers in the Pita area do a small write-up.My team had good number of visitors drop in and asking questions to team and few wanted to know about our RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device) sensor solution for keeping Milk Ud Safe - from the farm to table. Few individuals wanted to know the design specifics, which I can communicate privately. We are extending the project research for the Global Innovation award keeping Milk Cartons in the School cafeteria and homes safe from spoilage. Team had fun creating a RAP Milikway musical and sharing solution with many Safety experts including the Shenandoah Pride Dairy Plant (supplier of the Milk Cartons to the Schools in the Northern Virginia).Expect Unexpected.Few suggestions for the teams taking (TJ exam next year) and scheduling time session which may have caused my entire team to forfeit participating as we didn't reach till 2.45 PM on Saturday. If I would not have known Nick personally and giving him a heads-up and his graciousness saved our weekend. First TJ entrance exam started late at various NOVA centers (crowding) and second traffic was backed up for miles due to a car in flames on I-66 before Front Royal. Few team members from my team barely made on time for our first judging session. Our situation was unique but a advise to communicate early with the tournament officials and plan.Start planning for 2012 challenge - "Senior Solutions"Good LuckDesh DeshmukhCoach
