It's been a busy month. Sam competed for the first time in the K*Bots World Championships which are held right here in Las Vegas each year. Unfortunately, "right here in Las Vegas" means in Summerlin so it's a 30 minute drive each way twice a day. The competitors spend the week building robots out of K'Nex parts and battle each other on Thursday and Friday. Sam made it through to the second round in each of his divisions, which is not bad at all for a rookie.
