rules of the blindfold engine competition

Have you ever done something so many times that you feel that you could do it in your sleep?

Did you ever find yourself exclaiming, "I could do that with my eyes closed!"

Each day, 1/C Training Rates have assisted underclassmen as they took apart and reassembled Briggs & Straton Lawnmower engines. 

Over...and over...and over again. 

Day after day! 

Until one day, the Rates exclaimed in unison, "We could put that engine together with their eyes closed!"

And that's when they came up with the Blindfold Engine Competition!  Check out these photos of this fun-filled evening!

What could you do with your eyes closed?  With assistance from your teacher or a parent, organize a competition of your own.
