What's a bed race you ask? It's a very serious event where competing teams must construct their own custom race vehicles following very ridged and strict guidelines to insure both safety and high performance for all the competitors. Or in this case, simply slap together an old bed frame by attaching some discarded wheels and decorations.
However you must have 4 burly guys who can sprint at least 1 block and 1 passenger weighing at least 100 pounds or more. Stuffed animals are optional.
There is also a rigorous warm up routine prior to the race. All competitors and some spectators are required to complete the Macarena to ensure they don't pull a muscle during the run. And you don't take yourself too seriously.
For all you hard-core sport enthusiasts, the Port Townsend Track and field team won, best 2 out of 3.
Later today is the big Rhody Parade, and the mysterious "Running of the Balls". I know you can't wait to see what that is...
