Jeff from Transformix came in, so the climber team explained their idea; he proposed some new ones, and everyone brainstormed other possibilities.
As for the shooter, the team got the geometry down, and is now working on details like assembly, manufacturing, etc…

It turned out the A/C shaft opened to the outside, so the room was freezing cold. We had a janitor put a plastic bag over it, which seemed to work.DSC_0012
James helped Sophie through some anger-issues with his new pamphlet from Queen’s: “We’re here for you Sophie; we will express concern.”
