    Thanks and I sure will pass it along to the kids. It was hardwork and dedication of both teams that paid off.

    Thank you and I will pass along the comments to the kids.

    Flannelman, it was held on the campus at UALR on the 25th.

    Because they did so well, we have been ask to attend another competition in Bryant. This one we not only have to have the quick stop racers but also have to make CO2 dragsters and balsa bridges. So we are back to the research stage again as we have never made either before.
