After a tough day travelling it was time for the team to make their first mark….
The next day we were up bright and early and had a look around the place. One word… AWESOME! Microsoft really know how to throw an event! After looking around we managed to spot two large empty blackboards, at this point our immaturity kicked in and we decided to take over the whole blackboard with our logo!
It was safe to say, we were already dominating the competition!
The first day was so much fun! Although there was no official competing just yet, we could still feel it in the air, but in true SoundSYNK manner, we didn’t want to take things too seriously just yet and instead decided to cause a little bit of a stir…
We had planned beforehand on trying to get people’s attention whilst we were out there, and had devised a plan.. The usual attire of teams is to wear a hoody or a tracksuit with your team name on it, but we decided to go that step further and introduced the team Onesie! Everyone loved them and they definitely had the affect we wanted! From what we hear, Onesies will be the new global team uniforms… great to know we started the trend!
After prancing around causing a scene, we finally decided to get registered and sat through a briefing session informing us on what we should be expecting over the next few days and it finally dawned on us just how many amazing student teams we were competing against. It wasn’t just the UK any more, we had gone global! After a quick team chat and pep talk, we head off back to our rooms for a night of practicing. We had a lot to polish up on especially since our presentation slot was at 8.30 the next morning!
