Pinewood Derby Runner-Up

MTI hosted the Schaumburg Business Association's first inaugural Grand Prix Pinewood Derby on Thursday.

We finished second by an impossibly close thousandths of a second! (Of course, I would never mention that the first race of the finals that we crushed got thrown out for technical difficulties.) Seriously though, congratulations to Starpoint, and to the SBA for a super fun change of pace! It truly was the biggest and most unique Business After Hours.

For those of you who missed it (for shame), there were all kinds of restaurants, bars and food trucks showcasing their specialties, and 95.9 The River was broadcasting live to provide an electric atmosphere.

Make it happen next year. Honestly, we didn't even know what we were doing, other than strategically balancing some weights. At least we have something to shoot for in 2014.
