Schenectady JCC summer camp attempts world record

Posted:

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. - What do you get when you combine a big field, bunch of local summer campers, and more than 300 tires? A world record attempt!

The Schenectady JCC took a shot to be in the record books Tuesday for the most consecutively rolled car tires.

More than 300 campers, counselors and volunteers gathered together to attempt to all roll a tire down the field 100 meters without dropping it. They are trying to break the current record of 299, which was set in Australia in 2011.

Camp directors wanted a way to spice up the summer, and decided this would be a great way to get the young and old involved.

Eight-year-old Macy Drouin, who convinced her grandfather to help, says being in the Guinness Book of World Records would be "very cool and my mom would be proud."

Now, they need to verify the attempt with two notary publics and send the documents to the Guinness Book of World Records to make the record official. They expect to hear back in about three weeks.
