After 3 people have placed their turtle in the circle they lift the wall up and the first to reach the outside of the larger circle wins.
So the first race goes and the middle aged woman, who was acting in her 20's, immediately jumps up and down and with closed fists calls the turtle towards herself. The immediately came over and told her to pay up or leave. She refused to pay since her fists were closed but a boy paid the $10 fine for her. Now I've heard turtles are slow but these turtles knew what they had to do and were very quick. We watched a few races which usually were stopped early because of fouls aka people pointing.
It was entertaining but not something I need to see more than once.
Friday night I went with my friend to a Social event at Sharky's for Boeing employees. We went for Happy Hour which was fun since all drinks were 2 for 1. We shared steak fajitas... delicious. It was fun since quite a few other RPI graduates were hiered by Boeing so we got to hang out with them.
Next we went a friends apartment to hang out and have a few beers. It was great hanging out with people from college. I was surprised by how many people I knew actually moved to LA.
