Did you know that Gavroches and Golden Knights have something in commom?
posted: Jan 25th, 2015 The situation right behind the two top teams at the Wind Games 2015 was very similar. Gavroches from France won clearly by seven points, although the extended leaderboard shows a different picture.
NMP-PCH Hayabusa still won the meet before and after penalties, while Thunder ISR actually completed more formations in the total working time than Gavroches. The nine point deductions were too much for Thunder to outscore their French rivals for the first time.
Both teams have met each other every year at the World Challenge... (more)

Did you know that the Golden Knights have a much better start into the 2015 season?
posted: Jan 21st, 2015 The "stop watch poll" did not attract as much attention by the audience compared to other previous topics, such as the discussion whether it makes sense to change Block 10 (Diamond - Bunyip) or not.
