    But the point was supposed to just be to prove you were on the ride. If it's something that was hard to see or you could only see from certain angles then, IMO, something was wrong.

    Of course, that's easy for me to say. Did I mention we finished in the Top Ten?
    The last place team (mine) was very proud of their efforts! Those said efforts are mentioned below.

    And that is how you come in last place!

    We actually thought it was pretty easy to see. Of course, there were four of us to look at it and confirm.

    I normally wouldn't post this, but since you guys wear last place as a badge of honor, I'll just let everyone know that you guys rocked in at an amazing . . . 11 points!

    It must take a lot of work to score that low. But with a lot of practice, you did it!

    At least you guys had a lot of fun, were able to eat 3 square meals, AND get all your socializing, napping, and shopping done!!!

    It was a really hard ride for us to come up with a question for at all. We tested it with 4 different folks before the event and they all got it right, so we weren't worried about using it.

    On those attractions where people made the same common mistakes, if we could tell you went on it by the way you answered, you still got the points. The goal was not to answer questions, but to ride the rides. We only use the questions as a method for proving that. Teams that were thrown by the incorrect possible answers listed on the Star Tours question or by the wording of the Tea Cup question all got the points if they attempted the attraction and an answer.

    But by and large, most of the questions had a single simple answer and those were counted as a missed attraction if you got them wrong.


    And that's the way it was - Gumball Rally 2, now part of the collective history of MiceChat.

    And that ^ is the best way to explain what it takes to put on a Gumball Rally.

    First he was Dusty Wan - helpful and leading his apprentice

    Then he became Dusty Vader - just a little evil

    Somehow, he became Dusty the Hut, just as evil, but with many evil minions all around him.

    Now, it's over, it was fun and he gets to be super nice "Princess Dusty of Alderaan!"
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    WOW! I can't believe the Dapper Dan-cers made it to the top 10!!

    If only the Matterhorn hadn't broken down on us. We were on the first big lift...not to the yeti yet and we had to wait to be rescued and escorted out those two points would have put us tied with 5th place. We also had an Autopia FP we didn't have time to use, and several easy no wait points left on the table (Snow White, Pinnochio, Carrousel, ect) Oh well...

    Looking forward to next year!

    THANK YOU AGAIN GUMBALL RALLY STAFF!!!!

    You guys are the best!!

    Actually I put 3, and added it could be 4 if we counted the tilted light. I covered all the bases! I also corrected the Wispy's Pub question, crossed it out and put Winky's.

    Is there a possibility of getting my question packet back? Or do you have to hang on the them for certain reasons?
