Taylorsville Urban Iditarod - Mar. 3, 2012

Saturday, Mar. 3, was the Taylorsville Urban Iditarod. The Iditarod takes after the Alaskan Dog Sled Iditarod, only instead of dogs and sleds, we use people and shopping carts.

Thanks to Rhetta and Brett McIff and their committees for the all the hard work to put this together. It was a huge success!!

To see what you missed out on, check out this video: (But don't worry, there is always next year to put together a team, or pump your business by being a sponsor. It's always the first Saturday in March.)

We were thrilled to be on all four TV stations and the front page of the 
Sunday Deseret News' local section. Here is some of the coverage:

And the winners for 2012 are...

Best Cart/Costume ~ Doompity Dee (Willy Wonka and the Oompa Loompas)

Fastest Time ~ Kind of a Big Deal

Highest Score ~ The "Iron Will" award ~ Leprechauns

Most Enthusiastic ~ Howlin' Hillbillies

Dead Last ~ the "'Bout Time you got here!" award ~ The Bed Bugs

Thank you to our sponsors this year:

Your support and donations make this event better!

The acts of sabotage were priceless....we are hearing reports of fake security guards, cart inspections, random surveys, flag stealing, knots in fire hoses, bribing the Mayor, and more. You all make us so proud!
