Some interviews with students and a picture of Rattler 1 fighting Tux Jr. appeared in today's Miami Herald!!

Maybe someone from Miami could scan and post the article here....

Good job and great publicity for the sport!!!

You guys are just kids....you'll see it all differently, later on in life... (ya ya ...that's what all the old people keep saying)

Kids get to the age where they know it ALL....no one knows more than a 15 to 17 year old....amazing...we must all get dumber as we pass that age.

From 16 to 21, 25 or even 30, kids are ALL total PITA's.....besides thinking that they know more than when they were 16 (how can that be, they knew it all then... Laughing ) now they think that they are truly MEN or women....They have yet to pay bills or support a family, but they are truly all grown up and they know it all....lol

No problem CODY, IF YOU'RE A PITA, THEN YOU'RE JUST DOING YOUR JOB !!! affraid

Hmm, was Rattler running a drum at the competition? If so, they're off on the reported drum speed by an order of magnitude (2500 reported, 25000 actual).

in the written article they called both Fushia and rattler spinners....newbies....lol

Rattler 1 is/was a drum spinning 25k to 35k...and often in the unconventional direction.

no biggie...it's all good publicity for the sport....yes?
