Coach: Vickey (my mom). Team: Built On The Rock. Place: Mt. Olive, NJ
This is our second year. We got third last year, and now we're going for first. :)
This is our first year as a team. I was involved on a team last year with our son. He's also the only kid with experience. The ages are 9-12, mostly 10 year olds. It should be fun.
I`ve just created my own blog now!
If anyone want to check it out you can just go to www.nxtrox.blogspot.com
the blog is still being created so be patient ;-)
maniac000 - do you mean the legendary (in our team)MAYHEM?
FLL is about more than tournament placings
FLL is about... :-)
Seriously, this is my 5th year as a coach and I've had award winning teams and well, ones that didn't win anything and I can tell you the end result was the same: we had a blast and ended up learning a lot. FLL is great that way.
This year's challenge is another dandy one. Hats off again to Scott Evans, FLL mastermind. Each year there's always one doozy of a mission (last year it was the flags) and this year's "decider" appears to be the Inividual Atom Manipulation. I'm looking foward to seeing all of the creative solutions to this one. I'm also glad to see the shared mission is cooperative instead of competitive. Last year my team spent a ton of time just trying to figure out how to get to the dolphin faster than the other team. It will be nice to focus that time on more productive pursuits this year.
Good luck to everyone!

This is our second year - we had a blast last year so we're back for more. We're a homeschool team and this year the team is four boys, ages 9, 10, 12 and 12, all returning team-members. We're also mentoring two new teams.
They've done well if that is what you mean. But tournement placings are not what FLL is about.
