Thank you for the thousands of votes cast in Mascot Madness. We started with over countless nominations and last night we proudly announced the winner. According to National Geographic: "Bobcats may look cute and cuddly, but these felines that live throughout North America can leap as far as 12 feet to catch prey and have been known to take down much larger animals. …The wild feline is about twice as big as a house cat and a lot faster. It can run at speeds up to 25 to 30 miles an hour, and it’s skilled at swimming.” Our goal as we build Region 20 will be to live up to the description of the Bobcat. We may not be the biggest but we are going to surprise many with everything that we can accomplish. Welcome to the Home of the Bobcats. Our next adventure awaits.
