Last (?) Report from Detroit

Isn’t technology wonderful? All power on the site is now down. Not because of lighting or high winds, but because the huge generator shot craps and started to smoke. All displays are down so there is no way to report any scoring.
On the field of battle they tell us that approximately 30 teams (out of 50+) have qualified. Of those 30 teams only ten have made it as far as half-way through the course. Of those ten, one robot has made it as far as 80% of the course.
None, zero, zilch, nada, completed the course. You could say thirty teams are tied for 1st place and the Miners, who have finally run out of time, are tied with twenty other schools for 2nd.
See you back in Rolla.
