Lions got banned from our District race too, for "safety" reasons, apparently. Sounds dumb to me, but I wasn't in a position to argue.Speedster wrote:I learned at our district race the Lions will not be allowed to compete at the District level. Too much of that "Winning and Losing stuff". They will not stop the racing at the Pack level so we will be having them race at our Pack in 2018. I have no objections to the District decision. They may well be 100% correct.
That said, we do have a "siblings" category, and if any under-6 kids show up with cars, I'm not gonna stop 'em...
I will be lobbying for inclusion of Lions at the District level next year.
Run the cars down the track one at a time, let them light up the timer, and give them all a treat if that makes everyone happy.
I just finished working with a young handicapped boy and his little sister that attend our church. Their eyes lit up and their smiles so wide all through the build. I'll be taking my track in next Sunday and we'll tune their rail riders. I'm excited and I know they will be too.
