COT: St. Patrick converted the pagan Celtics of Ireland to Christianity and he used the three leaf clover to describe the holy trinity: god, the son and the Holy Spirit. Hundreds of years ago to today, people think the four leaf clover represents faith, hope, love, and luck. There is one four leaf clover for every 10,000 three leaf clovers. A lot of clovers tend to grow in Ireland. Thus, if you find a four leaf clover, you have the luck of the Irish. I don’t think it needs to be a 1 in 10,000 occurrence to have or display faith, hope, love, or luck. Let’s do our best to live right and lead right to bring more faith, hope, love, and luck to our family and loved ones and to our community. May the luck of the Irish be with you. Happy St, Patrick’s Day.
Looking at the times submitted and strategies used, how much did the time depend on the strategy vs execution? Well, a few teams that did the exact order finished just seconds apart. However, with a wise order, a team could finish more than 2 minutes faster.
