    Congratulations to the winners! They overcame the various hardships of the course and prevailed to win the day. I was somewhat disappointed that some of the other bots experienced technical difficulties (Dare I say "Glitches") that prevented the competition to be more robust. I thought there were entries that had merit but for one reason or another didn't perform as well as they are capable of. I propose the competition be extended and run again next meeting. It's not to take away from the clear winners of today's challenge, but to give everyone a chance to see how things might have turned out if it weren't for the fickle hand of fate. As we don't have a set schedule of agenda for other projects I don't see another race as taking away from the spirit of the group - to make it technical perhaps the contestants can tell what went wrong last time and how they managed to overcome the obstetrical. We learn just as much when things don't go as planned if we can find and fix the problem
