Special Awards
Best Driver -- Pressure Point - Jesse Taylor Team JandA
Coolest Bot -- Spaz Hammer - Ed McCarron Team Golden
Best Sportsmanship -- Alan Young...who promptly gave the award to Aaron Taggart for freeing him during their last match. Aaron summarily lost by judges' decision. The judges deliberated giving Aaron this award, but we knew we did the right thing when Alan gave it to Aaron because it proved he was the right choice. Plus, Aaron got the award anyway, so it all worked out

Heres are the memory-mangled thank-yous to everyone that made this event possible...

Eric and Rob, for arena work extrordinaire, faxing interesting body parts, and generally going above and beyond the call of duty time and time again. Without them this event wouldn't have happened.
Eric for making awesome trophies, and Kirstin for assembling them.
Al Kindle for wrangling prizes - also, thanks to the sponsors - that list will follow shortly.
Jon Durand for database manipulation par excellence.
John Wolan for hiding in a little black box all weekend. I think he was videotaping, but I'm -sure- I heard snoring from in there at one point.
Josh F for videotaping the bug fights.
Eric, Alan, Rob, Al and whoever else was helping with check-in.
All the bot-widows that got neglected this weekend.
Brad, Trailways Speedway, and the Motorama Association for giving us an excellent place to play.

Arena Setup: Josh Z, Jim I, Chad N, The Olin, Conallen, and Parson Families, Chuck and Michelle C, Jon D, Rob, Eric, and some other people. One day I'll make a list DURING the setup.
Michelle and Beth for keeping everything flowing smoothly. They worked out the scheduling pretty good too.
Tony for not losing his voice or cool - even in the face of a lack of coffee and "Mountain Dew".
Paul V, Matt L, and Jim I for deciding who won and lost - they even judged a few fights too.
Chuck's Brother (Adam?) for letting me bully him into manning the door.
Chris Gilleski for manning the scales.
Arena Teardown: Josh F, Dawn W, Bryan R, Jim I, Paul V, Al K, Alan Y, Chuck and Michelle C, Matt L, Chad N, Joe and Dan P, Ted Z, Pete C, Dan W, The Benson, Woodhead, Peterson and Smith Families. There was a TON of folks helping - this made teardown pretty painless. Thanks!

We are sure we missed some folks, so thanks to anyone we missed.
See you all at the next event.

As always, thanx to our very generous sponsors for their continued support!
