January 6th, 2018
On Saturday, January 6th, 1374 attended Halton kickoff with 9 other teams, including our sister team, 1334. At this event, all teams sat down for two hours socializing with each other, trying to get to know each other better. Then, when the game animation was released, the teams were separated to work on their individual strategies based on what information the video gave. Finally, after coming up with strategies, each team shared their initial ideas with one another. It was a great day, and we're really excited for the upcoming season!
