Want to win hundreds of dollars worth of clothes from ***** Toad? The
Santa Barbara, Calif., company has launched a competition—the *****
Toad and Instructables “Invent-a-Sport” Contest. From July 10th to
August 10th, contestants can submit their entry by visiting http://www.hornytoad.com and submitting the blueprint to a real or imagined fringe sport or outdoors activities.
As per the company’s promotional material, “there are hundreds of
sports out there with well-defined rules to follow (boring), but *****
Toad and Instructables think rules are made to be broken.”
Toad and Instructables—the
latter which is a website specializing in “user-created do-it-yourself
projects”—want to see variations on existing sports or complete
originals. So far, entries have included flashlight tag, lawnmower
racing, skateboard sailing, extreme lacrosse, among many others.
Submit your entry with a text description, images and video (optional). Grand prize is a $350 gift card to Hornytoad.com.
I have my own entry to throw in the barrel: Nocturnal Fixie Dog-Joring.
Don’t try this at home, but as of late I’ve been riding my single-speed
fixie bike hooked to my dog (dog-joring) at night. Quite a ride, as
Rodney the 90-pound Weimaraner can gallop at 20mph for almost two miles
dead straight. I let my legs spin on the fixed cranks, trundling down
deserted city streets near my house, following a halo of LED
illumination cast from my handlebar light. Will have to get an image
and post it to the Toad page. See if I can win. . .
