One Day To Go: Snow Block Practice: Mon, Jan. 21

Today the team worked hard on the practice block. We were not concerned about the structural integrity of the design so we could focus on getting the shape right, and it all seemed to work. We also continued to work on our collection of tools and our plan of attack. We want to be able to move efficiently once the event begins tomorrow at 11:00 am. We started work on the practice block, rear in photo below, using the rough styrofoam attempt from yesterday as a guide.

Then we switched to David's finely made model, and by the end of this snowy day had a decent replica.
