Re: “Know Your 2011 Kinetic Sculptures! (UPDATING!) (NOW WITH SOUND!)

Eureka High School should reprimand this team. Despicable behavior with two bullying parents spurring them on for their own ego boost. Sad.

The bottom line is that the organization putting on the race can choose any age limit they want. Soccer is legal to play by all ages. But try to get into an over 40 soccer league when you're 39. Seems pretty cut and dry.

These aren't bicycles. They are kinetic sculptures. You can ride all the bicycles you want. Sorry, you can't join the army til you're 18. Not 14 nor 16 but 18. Maybe you should have found another pilot who was old enough to ride with the older sister. Then you wouldn't have to break the rules and force your way into a race that ends up pissing off just about everyone but a handful of your supporters. Try forcing yourself into the army and see what happens. Maybe your parents can run in and sit down to join, then you can run in and take their seats when no one is looking. Ya, thats another good idea.

Do the "Extreme". That's where you can do anything at any age. Oh, wait...that race went by the wayside because no one came.

The tiger was beautiful, the machine looked good, but they broke the rules. Another negative moment in the race brought to you by Aly Krause and company. Seen it for years and it's still just as ugly. There's an insurance liability and safety issue here and powering your way around the rules could jeopardize this whole event. I was out on the mouth of the eel river the third day and watched as these girls spun in circles fully soaked for 45 minutes in freezing cold water with no steering yelling at the sheriff posse boat to come rescue them. Letting these girls go out there was child endangerment and very disrespectful to all the race. People do drown, and having a 14 year old child possibly drown in this race is not worth breaking the rules over no matter how many generations of racers you're from.
