WOOF has won the 3D4D Challenge!

Last week, as you may know if you've been keeping up with the blog, WOOF officers Bethany Weeks, Matt Rogge, and Brandon Bowman journeyed to London to attend the finals of the 3D4D Challenge. On Friday, October 19th, they, along with the 6 other finalists, gave presentations on their proposals to a panel of judges. These presentations were streamed at 9:00 AM, PST. The results were supposed to show up at 1:00 PM, PST, so the club workroom was abound with excitement as the hour drew near. 1:00 came... and went! By 1:30, we had all decided that the judges must have had a hard decision on their plate. We went about our business, disappointed but still hopeful.

And that hope was not unfounded! At nearly 9:00 PM, PST, word started getting around that WOOF had won the 3D4D challenge! Tweets by the 3D4D panel themselves made it official. You can check out the official announcement at the link below:

This is just the story from our side of the pond... Once our beloved officers come back to the states (and get caught up on school), we will hopefully have even more stories to share. But for now, enjoy these two pictures from the event.

This is an exciting first step in a new direction for WOOF! Huge thanks to the 3D4D challenge and its sponsors for making this all possible!
