  • And they're off..........

    Bob and Allen, as well as Keith and Martin are well into Drag Week 2011....several BSers made it to Topeka to support their efforts and visit a bit. I'll post a couple of photos as well as a link to the album at PhotoBucket.

                    I finally won the battle with my camera, computer, and YouTube.....here's one of Bob's runs in Topeka, not his best but the best one I got without my glasses:

                    and here's Keith's:

                    I never saw him run at Great Bend on the 'live feed' (which is only 52 minutes long)......don't know his status as of now. Bob and Allen are safely in Amarillo having a steak about now.

                          correct me if i'm wrong, but i thought the classes were at the even numbers (10.00, 11.00, 12.00......etc).
                          if that's the case, then boob's running too fast for 12.00 and way too slow for 11.00.

                            Good for him for not sandbagging then! I respect that a hell of a lot more than bracketeering the thing.

                              You know Bruce, I have no idea how they set up Drag Week. I tried to look up the rules, and I couldn't figure it out. Maybe that's why I've never participated.... LOL
