Space Kid Head Cup 20x

As previously noted, today was the Space Kid Head Cup 20x; the 20th year that May 1st has been celebrated with a soap box derby here in Weimar.

It’s a great deal of fun, although with around 50 entries this year, it was a bit of a slog.  I stayed for the entire first race, which was not for speed, but for style.  After all the entries went down the hill, I moved my position to be behind the hay bales at the bottom and stuck around for the first few entries, before I decided it was time to go home and take a nap.

I’ve been having tons of trouble sleeping of late, and a brief 45 minute nap was all I needed to perk up and be ready for an evening of fun.

Meanwhile, here are some snaps from today!

My favorite entry in the race today.

One of several accidents during the style race.

This just looks uncomfortable. And he had an accident further down the hill.

My favorite entry, past the finish line, during the speed trials.
