Just returned from the 2011 Heartland BEST competition in Alva, OK.  Team Phoenix made it into the semi-finals, into the Elite Eight, and ended up placing 6th overall.  Things have been absolutely insane over the past week, far too much to cover at this time, having had just about 3 hours sleep in the last two days, so full details will have to wait until later.  Suffice it to say that Team Phoenix has pulled off yet another amazing example of drive and determination, and did fantastically well for such a small group with such limited resources.  Better yet, the Heartland BEST group has allowed us to keep our kit through the end of March 2012, which will enable us to continue to expand our skills and abilities in the coming months.
