On March 16, Team 2612 hosted yet another competition, at Waterford Mott High School. The time and effort everyone put in to help set up the field, the pit area, and table set ups for the volunteers. Despite the long hours and the back aching groaning the turnout was more than appreciated.
The next day was the beginning of the qualification matches, while teams were battling it out trying to snag some ranking points, team 2612 were spending their time serving concessions and helping teams out in the pits with our reliable SWAT team (Students Wrenchs And Technology).
On the final day everything went into high gear towards the end of the day. Teams were busier watching the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals then buying concessions. Even from the concession stand I could hear the roar of teams from the gymnasium. I got a chance to catch the last match of the finals and it was a sight to see. During my break I had a chance to watch Team 2137, Team 27, and Team 4779 took home the gold.
Hosting was a blast and I am going to miss hosting another competition but I hope our juniors, sophomores, and freshmen have a great time next year.
