Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
"Our machine will work when pigs fly"

Why we think we should win:
we should win because we literally made a pig fly...

We have put our time, our energy, and our hearts fully into this pigtastic machine. Over the course of this year of Rube, we have grown in our friendships with one another, our creativity, and, most of all, our patience. We are beyond grateful to have the opportunity to learn and make memories together as a team. #teampig

Suggestion for next year's challenge:
Untieing a shoelace

Where does bacon come from you ask? Well, do we have a hog wild story for you...
