Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

I got there at the requested time---waited about a half hour for the rest to show up.

Had a pretty good showing of cars to race.

It has always been fun for me to be the starter for the Derby. I get a kick out of watching the kids react to their handiwork.

Thanks to Inklings for the pictures---again.

I always feel morally obligated to get there before everyone else too. Looks like a good, fun evening.

It was a hoot---after the real races the kids ran their cars against each other for about an hour---some crashed and lost their wheels but the kids didn't seem to care. The winners didn't participate.
