Bungee Run

OK, here it is...just remember Becky asked for them! This is Billy doing the Bungee was the band booster's fundraiser. I really needed a video camera to get the best shots of this. You are strapped into a harness at the back of the thing...the harness is connected to a big bungee cord. You run as fast and hard as you can and stick a velcro pad to the center wall...whoever gets the furthest wins. OK, sounds simple enough...but what they don't tell you is you got to get the pad slapped down before you completely stop and the cord yanks you back. I mean it yanks you go flying backwards...
sometimes doing sumer
sults and what not! The kids loved it. When only one child wanted to do it, one of the band kids would *race* with them; this is what Billy is doing. One of the football players holds the record...29 1/2 feet! We were talking with the folks who rent this "ride" and the record for this was 27 1/2 he set a new ride record! It was pretty easy to get out to 17-20 feet; most of the kids were getting in this range. I think the farthest Billy got was 24 or 25 feet.
