We went to the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville after the competition to see the Science Fiction Exhibit, which was awesome. We also saw a Saturn V rocket, a space shuttle, and all sorts of other cool stuff. Afterward, we went to a Halloween party sponsored by the Space Center. Then we got caught in the pouring down rain trying to reach the car. Much wetness and running later, we were in the cars and headed back to the hotel, where we had a Halloween party with candy and gaming (since it was raining too much to trick-or-treat).

Congratulations to our mathletes for a job well done!
