Posted:javascript:void(0)Hey Bender !

Your site is great too !
I'm going to try to get the pics from this year's competition up before we leave......the junior's this year were actually better than the seniors !
Anyway - I think I've got a pretty good shot of my son with three knives...and my little guy, 11 years old, who insisted I wrap his burned hand and let him compete.....lotta heart that kid...
Of course - he burned his hand 'cause he diddn't listen to his mama !
It seems that the Samoan Fireknife dance gets a bit more leeway - perhaps because it's considered cultural ? Just seems as if we are not held to the same safety standards as other fire acts, which makes it harder for us to enforce safety measures here.
Ouch ! Brain Freeze !
