Actually, the teachers are behind the Amazons on this. Ron Perry, the East Lab teacher, was there with them most of the weekend, taking pictures and getting just as angry at the officials who were trying to bar them from racing as anyone else.
Even the Superintendant of Schools, upon receiving a letter notifying him of the events and advising him to stop the kinetic program (and to punish the students) said that he had no inclination to change any of the East Lab leadership, policies or advisors.
Once again Racer Number Five is speaking without any facts or evidence to support thier argument.
Racer Number Five has now graduated from being simply mistaken to making Ad Homonym attacks over the Internet from behind a pseudonym against a child...
Way to add credibilty to your side of the argument, Racer. Not really sure what you hope to accomplish here.
Actually, that's not true either. The roads are public, and not closed for the event. (closed to traffic is different than closed to the public) The bay is a public waterway, and the dunes and parks are public beaches. The vehicles, and competitors, are only legally limited by the laws regarding bicycles.
The race has no grounds beyond that to keep people from racing. To try is unlawful discrimination.
So that means that past precedent, public opinion, and the law are all against the organizers in this case.
Racer Number Five, please check your facts before posting.
Legally, they are bicycles. The law classifies the kinetic race as a bike race. As long as someone is legally able to ride a bicycle on a public road they are legally allowed to ride a kinetic sculpture. That's why the insurance for the race doesn't mention age.
