Of course it had to rain. Nothing is ever easy. Here Dave and Alex were attempting to paint the checkpoint targets.

Meanwhile, Micah and Charles worked to waterproof the club's robot.
CIMG0005
Here's the club's bot. Its name changed a number of times. Nobody is sure what to call it now.
CIMG0006
This is Mike's bot. It is a further development on Ayer from last year's race.
CIMG0008
Here is Dan's (left) and Dave's (right) bots.

At least we had a tent for the rain. Still, the rain caused loads of headaches.
CIMG0014
What happens when you put a bunch of engineers in a flood? They start digging drainage ditches.
CIMG0015
Problem solved! We wonder what the philosophy club would have done?
CIMG0018
Some rain-inspired last minute modifications necessitated other last minute modifications.

Charles and Dan preparing for Dan's run.
CIMG0025
The club's bot took a wander through the swamp.
CIMG0019
Micah and Kimberly carry back the poor lost bot.
CIMG0030
Here we stand around as we watch the club's bot go the wrong direction again. Hmm.
CIMG0033
Mike's bot also wanders the wrong way.
CIMG0037
Ryan's bot, alas, also had some troubles.
CIMG0063
Dave's bot won without question. It did a number of successful laps while none of the other bots could even make the first checkpoint. Blame it on the rain!

These people worked hard to make it all happen (from left to right) Kimberly, Scott, Charles, Alex, Dave, Dan, Ryan, Mike, (Micah not pictured for some reason?!)
