Another successful year for the Pretzel Coaster Build-Off at BGW. Though this year we had record heat (and heat index) which made glue adherence a big challenge.

This year was a build of Griffon, which despite the high heat was a challenge of its on.

2009 Champions made it into the finals again however didnt take the title this year, though with what Busch gave them, they were all winners.

Photos can be found at link below if you care to view. Also includes the entries that got them to the finals.

Thanks for sharing.

Before you can be older and wiser you first have to be young and stupid.

LOL @ "The Pounder". I wish there was a real ride with that name.

Salty Rocket? I don't know why these names seem funny to me.

Edit: this DID make me run to the vending machine to grab a bag of Snyder's sourdough nibblers. :)

I really hope the creator of the Salty Rocket intended that innuendo.

I wanted to ask.. Believe me I did.. But couldnt bring myself to it, nor could I bribe anyone else to do it for me.
