Did you know there is actually a season for Power-Tool Drag-Racing? Well, did you know that flaming tether-ball is a competitive sport as well? And, what do these two things have in common beyond a lot of hyphens? They are all events coming up this weekend in Seattle that you can attend!
TONIGHT. TONIGHT. TONIGHT ::Power-tool Drag-race Workshop::
It is true. Power-tool drag-racing season is upon us. If this astonishing news has got you thinking that you must absolutely get your blown belt sander a new life with a glorious, potentially fatal, finish then this is the event for you. Tonight, Friday, March 27th from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm Hazardfactory will be hosting a race tool workshop.
At this event you will be able to get help on the drag-race-tool of your dreams and test it out on a “competition grade track.” The team from All Metal Arts will be on hand to help with metalworking tools, welding and any other tips you might need. This is a donation based event with a suggested $20 contribution to help cover costs. More info here >>
(Note: If you “google” power-tool drag-race” most of the results are youtube videos – so if you want a real how-to, better show up tonight!)
SATURDAY, MARCH 28TH ::Flaming Tether-ball::
This sport has been haled by Wired magazine as the potentially most popular Olympic category, if it were to ever be admitted. Obviously there is a vast conspiracy by the curling community to keep the light of Flaming Tether-ball hidden, but we’re here to hold it high for you and expose the wonder that is actually toilet paper soaked in white gas!
Believe it or not, safety is the number one priority of Flaming Tether-ball and various precautions make the game both fun and typically injury free. Matches are set-up for both participants and spectators, so if you are curious to observe before trying your hand at this, tickets are a mere $5 to attend.
If you’re pretty certain that you’ll be killing it on the FTB court and want to get in there and compete, sign up online and get your ticket for just $10. The event takes place at All Metal Arts in south Seattle. For tickets and complete event information, visit the organizations web site now >>
