We’ll we had held 5th place for most of the day, but in the last 20 minutes we fell to 6th. Both teams did well, but a tip of the hat goes to the KJ and TJ for being out in the lead all day. Not bad for our first CTF as a team. It was a little strange not being able to support each other when we’re sitting just a few feet apart. Everyone’s getting even more fired up about trying to compete as a team. We’ll be looking the CTF calendar to see what’s next. I’ve been adding content to the Bitfork CTF google doc. Please take a peek and if you can add something that would be great.
