A second team steps up

Meeting the bed race challenge issued last week by a team from Sidney’s Pier Hotel is a group of 15 people from Expedia Cruise Ship Centre

Team Expedia Cruise Ship Centres (they’re working on a catchier name) have raised the Jolly Roger on this August’s Bed Races on Beacon.

Meeting the bed race challenge issued last week by a team from Sidney’s Pier Hotel is a group of 15 people from Expedia Cruise Ship Centre in Sidney.

The pirate crew (they’re thinking of a catchy team name) will be part of the Bed Races on Beacon event in Sidney August 17. Team organizer Cathy Larsen says business owner Elaine Kirwin loved the idea and wanted to get involved. Larsen added she’s working on the board at Rest Haven Lodge — the organizing group behind the bed races — so putting a team in was a natural fit.

“We used to do it many years ago when they were held downtown (Victoria),” Larsen said. “It’s a lot of fun and great that they’ll be in Sidney this time.”

She added they are hoping their clients will be able to pledge them in their effort. Funds raised for the bed races go towards Rest Haven Lodge’s palliative care facilities.
