The U of O team is back from the competition in Montreal with a 22nd place finish. The team already has improvments for nexts years bridge, and with the knowledge gained we are ready to take on the competition. Although the best parts of the competition where talking to other universities during the bridge building. If we did one thing right it was that our design allowed us to put together the bridge quiet quickly so we had time to meet other teams. The crushing was a pretty good time as well, hearing university chants. The meal was pretty good if I do say so myself, and it was at the Bell Center which was an add bonus. Then the pub crawl, booting around Montreal going from bar to bar, and getting your share of free beer, yes I would have to admit I would love to go back next year.
