Coconut Grove Bed Races--Sep 6

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

President Barak Obama in bed with presidential opponent, Senator John McCain? It could happen! In Coconut Grove (Miami) Florida. President Bill Clinton was found in bed with Monica Lewinsky. Dino the dinosaur was wagging his tail in bed with creature with red toenails!

It happened at the Coconut Grove Bed Races which returns this September 6.
Form a team with your friends, neighbors, co-workers, get wacky creative, and you'll have fun competing and discovering who's in bed with whom! Register before AUGUST 21. Proceeds benefit the Alonzo Mourning Charities.

Let your creative juices flow and aim for that funny bone as prizes will be awarded.
Homestead-Miami Speedway, one of the sponsors, has offered to let teams practice on its racetrack Aug. 28. So far, 30 teams have signed up, and at least another 20 are expected to join.
