Lest I forget, my congratulations to the awesome couple, Jim and Lauren, and their apprentices for winning the most creative entry in the competition.  Well done!

SAMPLE "Press Release"
Feedback appreciated  :)
================


Robo-Porcupine Conquers Mt. Sunapee

Mt. Sunapee Resort - Newbury, NH
SATURDAY, APRIL 11, 2015




2015 ANNUAL INTRAGALACTIC CARDBOARD SLED RACE was held at the Mount Sunapee Resort


The porcupine, mascot of the Free State Project, is a peaceful animal that can use its quills in self-defense.  The Robo-Porcupine cardboard sled was designed and engineered by Free State Project early movers Jim Johnson and Lauren Canario as a homeschooling project. Under their guidance the kids, along with recent mover Ethan Glover, got together once a week to help make their concept a reality.  Using only cardboard, duct tape, paint, and wax, the team under the guidance of Jim the Master Craftsman, transformed Creature Creator Lauren’s design sketches into an amazing sled.

WMUR's show New Hampshire Chronicle videotaped the event and interviewed participants.  Their coverage will air on Thursday, April 16th at 7:00 p.m.

This isn’t the first victory for the dynamic duo. As 2009 Cardboard Sled Race Champions they created the awesome Pirate Ship, Griffin, for the event at Mt. Sunapee also winning the Most Creative category.



In the past they honed their skills as internationally acclaimed Kinetic Sculpture racing World Champions. Winning the grueling pedal powered championship race in their artistic creation got them invited to travel to Australia for an exciting build and ride event there.

They came to New Hampshire from Nevada via New London, Connecticut where they helped the brave holdouts in Fort Trumbull in resisting the abusive Eminent Domain taking of their homes.  Fort Trumbull is the neighborhood made famous in the landmark Kelo Supreme Court ruling. Lauren was arrested and imprisoned for three months.

Since moving to New Hampshire in 2006, they have not only helped build and repair homes for Free Staters to settle into, they are also major contributors to the fun factor in the Porcupine Community.

a hillbilly is a hillbilly. You don't need to distinguish between northern or southern.

It was faster than we thought it would be. Robo-porcupine lost it's head, so it must have gone faster than it thought it would too.

That's a relief.  I thought the giant porcupine may have gotten indigestion from eating cardboard corn.
