Challenges

  • Manufacturing the walking beam was most difficult since it needed to be strong enough to take a beating during the matches.
  • This year was a difficult year to dominate the game, but we did fairly well. We were still a major force within the arena due to our widespread marketing presence and our eventual chairman’s win for the 2nd year. World competitions went wonderfully as well, even though our wheels started to lose traction halfway through the event, but we kept an impressive lead throughout the entire arena for a day.
