Grass Chopper Race at PHSS

Mr. Walls' students welded their grass cutting bikes together for the annual PHSS Grass Chopper Race.  The wet weather posed some challenges, but not as many as a broken weld on the Team Tandem entry. It came down to a two chopper race with the team of Jeremy, Dane and Jordan pulling out the victory.  Great job boys!
