Machines Behaving Badly....Brief report.
Highlight of the day for me was a kid in the one pound weight class. He had spend a lot of time working on his machine and practicing his driving. After winning a match or two and being on the brink of another victory he got pushed into a spinning hazard and ripped to shreds. He was near tears. But he rallied, slapped his machine back together again and fought on. He made it to the final match, with first place on the line.......and got ripped to shreds again. But he was happy with second place, and seems to have enjoyed the ride getting there.
Hope to have some rather jaw dropping video coming in a bit, but off for three days of out of town work so it will be a little while.
Thanks to the dedicated volunteer help, to the enthusiastic kids and their families.
