Bash, Smash, Crash!

Last year we went to the Bluffdale Demolition Derby and had a great time, so this year we decided to go again with some friends from our ward. The derby was great, but unfortunately it was pretty chilly and I was very glad that I had changed from shorts, t-shirt and flip flops to jeans, sweatshirt and shoes. Brrr!!

Dave did not change and had to use the emergency blanket from our car for warmth :)

The cars I chose to cheer for this year didn't do so well and in the end Dave had three cars in the winner's match and I only had one. Here's what happened to my poor car "Skinny" (he fought bravely and died quickly):

There were 21 cars total, and the #12 station wagon didn't look like much, but ended up winning it all. Even more impressive was the Bluffdale Lions Club car. For five dollars you can buy a raffle ticket and enter a drawing to become the driver of the Lions car. The guy that won the raffle placed in his heat, advanced to the winner's match, and went home with second place and $1,700 in prize money!
