What we're up to

  • Sunday - OctoFinals and 'sploring Sacramento

    Sunday morning - another early start to get Emma to OctoFinals for OIL. Photo is Emma pointing to her code on the posting. Then off to Old Sacramento to listen in on the Music Festival and explore the museums.

  • Saturday - Competition Day!

    Early morning, had a great hot breakfast at the hotel before boarding the shuttle bus to competition. Kris had a long day in Tabulation, helping to enter ballots to the computer and sorting them out to go home with the schools.

  • Friday was sightseeing day!

    We went to the Sacramento Zoo, and then found a Japanese grocery store that had a full aisle of exotic candies. Allowance spent... In the evening, the Maine team gathered for a meeting to get our judge and competitor assignments, and then went out for dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory. Apologies. After numerous attempts, I cannot get the picture to stay right side up.

  • Traveling to Sacramento - Thursday

    Thursday was the travel day. 19 hours beginning at 3am eastern time and ending about 9pm after the sun set in Sacramento. We played some new games!

  • Cleaning up at the Car Wash!

    Students and parents held a car wash on Saturday May 7, and raised $537 for the team! Lots of laughter, great tunes, happy customers and shiny cars - great job everyone!
