A Day At The Races

This Saturday, we spent the morning at the Scout's Dragster Races. All the Scouts design their own car and then they race them. Each Scout got 3 time trials to determine their placement in the race. Then 2 cars at a time raced, with the winner moving on. The one picture shows the track the cars race on. One car is placed on each side of the track. The boys stand at the bottom of the track with a hand held depresser. They watch the lights at the top of the track and when the light turns green, they press their button to let their car go. They are only allowed 3 false starts. If they have more, their time does not count.
There were many different kinds of cars. I was impressed by the talent these young guys showed. There was one in the shape of a pencil, one was a "flower power" van, and one was even carved down to look like a skateboard with a fella standing on the top! The boys had a great time, and to be honest, so did Mom!!!!
Chow for now,
