Still Time To Show Spirit In Bed Races


There is still time to show community spirit by getting a team together for the Shop Hillsboro “Moonlight Madness” bed races, set to begin at 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, in downtown Hillsboro.

Each team must have five persons, and each team member must be age 14 or older. 

Beds will be provided by tournament organizers.  During a race, one person dressed in pajamas must remain sitting or laying flat on the bed during the entire race and may not aid in propulsion.  

Four runners, one on each bed corner, must push the bed and remain in contact with the bed throughout the race. 

Races will be in a blind-draw tournament format with cash prizes awarded to the top three finishers. 

Entry fee is $25 per team, and an entry form is on page 2A of this edition or available at The Journal-News office. Return it to The Journal-News office (431 S. Main St., P.O. Box 100, Hillsboro IL, 62049) by 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 19.
