The 2007 regional competition was in Kansas City, March 15 - 17. Results in KC:
1. Ranked 6th out of 44 entries based on qualifying rounds.
The top 8 could choose two others for allies in a double elimination tournament. We were chosen by the number 2 team and we accepted.
2. Our alliance made it to the final round, lost, and was awarded the finals trophy.
3. Awarded All Star Rookie team of the 15 entered, qualifying us to enter the international competition in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome, April 12-14.
In Atlanta we obtained 9th place out of 86 teams in the CURIE field (one of the four fields), got bumped up to 8th when a higher team was picked for an alliance.
We chose two partners for one of the 8 alliances to go in to the quarter finals where we were eliminated after the first two matches.
Pretty good for a rookie team!

2008 - Oklahoma City Regional March 20-22
We placed 6th out of 39 in the qualifying rounds and were invited by the 3rd place team to be in an alliance for the elimination matches.
We were the winning alliance and went to Atlanta again where we won 3 out of 7 qualifying matches.
