A little box spring bobsledding next weekend here in Maine.

We have interesting ways to get through the long winter here. Why not put the ol' mattress to use? Hey, good excuse to get a new one after!

Shawnee Peak plays host the the annual event. Mattresses of any size scoot down the main slope of the mountain, March 14th. Who ever gets to the bottom fastest, wins! Entree fee is $5, plus lift ticket. Registration is 9-Noon, with races starting at 1

Racers will compete for a new king sized mattress. There will also be a prize for the most uniquely decorated mattress.
