For the second year in a row, Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary claims two trophies at the Cloverdale Bed Races

It was another exciting night at the 39th annual Cloverdale Bed Races, with a double win for Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary, whose boys and girls teams won the mens’ and womens’ divisions.

Turkeys Pahttp://webpapersadmin.bcnewsgroup.com/portals/uploads/cloverdale/.DIR288/BedRaces.jpgrty Makers took home the Centre of the Universe Award after a dizzying number of heats, including special challenges.

The annual event, held May 19, features teams racing beds on wheels on 176A Street and is a traditional kick off to Rodeo Weekend in Cloverdale, bringing together a wide spectrum of teams fielded by businesses, non-profit organizations, churches, sports teams and students.

Lord Tweedsmuir’s girls track team won its second Chamber Pot in a row, defeating such challengers as the Surrey Beavers Women’s Soccer Team (for The Henry Public House), and building a reputation as a force to be reckoned with. Also for the second year in a row, their counterparts, the boys’ track team, claimed the coveted mens’ Bed Pan trophy for the school, pulling ahead of Surrey Fire Fighters in the last quarter of the race. In the mixed division for the first time in recent years, Turkey’s Party Makers claimed the Centre of the Universe Award, taking its heat against an impressively matched Pacific Community Church, after a dizzying number of heats and special challenges; the Turkey’s team had a record five successive wins in the men’s division until last year’s upset.

The award for best dressed went to Douglas Lake Equipment for their orange-imbued entry consisting of a bed festooned with banners and working lights, plus a creditable imitation exhaust that had the crowd in awe.

The Stone Pig went to Westminster Savings in the financial division.

The event followed the children’s decorated bike parade and a demo by competitors at the World Freestyle Round-Up at the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair.
