Won't be an offical FAI recognized record as we only built 297 out of
302, but it will go to Guinness as the biggest thing ever built.  It was
really beautiful.  A lot of people, ie those facing away from the weed
wacker that was having problems, thought we had built it.  The next dive
up we built to about 290 with the same weedwacker having problems again.
The video is truly amazing.

World Team'96 - and very happy to be back home in the USA!
