Standings for Monday, 11-05-07

Holy crap was last night fun or what? Solid turnout, solid sprint matches, bearable weather and some new goofball antics that you can be sure wil follow into the next two weeks.

Preliminary Heats!
cosme: 16:15
rodrigo: 17:97
jeremy: 16:31
john b: 17:23
daniel: 17:29
nikola: 16:28
lawrence: 17:87
alex: 17:21
brantley: 15:72
jose: 17:47
kevin: 18:03
gabe: DFL!
niki: 16:81
bones: 16:53

Since alex and john were so closely matched, a challenge was thrown up and accepted. the two went head to head for the 6th seat in the semi finals, first the cross the line takes it. after some serious mashing on both parts, john managed to pull ahead and take the win, moving on toward the rest of the night. however, i owe alex a beer for thinking his name was pete all night. i mean, i'm really awful with names, no doubt about that, but i think i called him "pete" like six times. i make no claims that i'm not a jerk.

Anyway! Before the semi finals we threw out the weekly curve ball which shall now be the standard!


Three teams of four going relay style from the start to a can of cheap, cheap beer and then back. I think i had more fun watching this than you all did racing it. Jeremy, Cosme, Lawrence and Daniel proved themselves the victors as "Team Grape Slushies". we're certainly doing this again next monday.

The distance has been changed! I didn't really bother to measure it out. Yeah. Guess who's lazy over here. I was shooting for somewhere in the 250-300m range. Who knows what it really is!

cosme: ****
niki: ****
jeremy: 23:60
nikola: 23:86
brantley: 23:06
john b: 25:37

After a communication error, niki and cosme were without times going into the finals, so a decision was made to take the winner of each semi final heat and do a three-way sprint to determine placing. Since cosme won his heat, he advanced.

cosme: 22:91
jeremy: 23:00
brantley: 22:84

Thanks again to all who came out, helped out and rocked out last night. I'll see you monday.
