Our Team Leader's favorite quote:
Work Smarter and Harder

Why we think we should win:
Our team overcame a lot of adversity this season. It seemed that every week there was something that prevented us from having our meeting sessions (snow storms, coach's kid was sick, etc). Despite these hurdles, they kept their eye on the goal.

Our machine celebrates different areas of a kid's life using 60 steps.
Area 1 = Playing Cards section.
Area 2 = Minecraft.
Area 3 = Carnival Fun
Area 4 = Lincoln Log Cabin
Area 5 = Rock Concert
Area 6= Family Entertainment
Area 7 = The Child's Bedroom where he/she pours a bowl of Cheerios which are illuminated by Christmas lights.
