Mt. Olive? I had had college roomate (many moons ago) that was from Hackettstown. I think that's close to you.

good luck

Wow, I live right next to Hackettstown in Independence! Mt. Olive is where the NJ state tournament is held.

Our team name is Wisdom Quest, Hampstead, NH
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 come from the south. SC that is. We took third three years ago, first after that and last year we got third again. We're going for first again.

maniac000 - do you mean the legendary (in our team)MAYHEM?

Repeat after me everyone:

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!

Team: ZAP!
Place: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

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.
FLL is about...:-)
