We were selected by team 3024, My favorite Team, from Ashland, to join the 5th Alliance, and the team leaders decided to pick team 6465, Mystic Biscuit, from Bend. We won our first playoff match, but unfortunately lost our next two, preventing us from advancing. The competition left us in a favorable spot to advance to the district event in Tacoma.
