2008 Houston Competition
June 14th,2008: This was the first competition ever hosted in Houston. A fairly large number of spectators were there as well as 8-10 people who were competing. The competition was a success. The competition had enough of an effect to have more competitions held in Texas. This competition was fairly small, but it was a great start. I was on the local news which aired 4 days before the actual competition. The equipment for the competition was actually rented from the Speedstacks company
