On the bright side the local newspaper took pics of my son and one of the crabs, they caught on that it was his 5th B-day, took down his info and said it will be in next weeks local newspaper, so hopefully we will have something for the scrapbook.

Oh no!!! Couldn't you teach those guys to go "Dale Earnhardt" on the lead crab?? You know...rubbins' racin' and all that

Oh well, sounds like an increase in training regimen is required.....can't have them lying around getting all fat and lazy in the off season

Sounds like you guys still had a good time despite not advancing to the next rounds. Your competition didn't stick any lead weights in those shells, did they?? That's really cool about the local paper reporter being there and getting his info. Definitely sounds like a clipping for the scrapbook

Almost could have met up with you! Got a last minute deal last night by email for one of the Myrtle Beach resorts this weekend. Almost booked it as a surprise end of summer trip but DW is still under the weather so it's a no go.
