Twin Cities hackerspace the Hack Factory is holding clothesline races next month.

You will build a racer, attach it to the cable in the shop, and have it race to the finish and back to the start on its own power. Fabulous prizes will be awarded in various categories. We had a potluck for our Alpha and MK1 races; we’ll stick with that tried and true formula. Autumnal jollity will be had by all.

Guests are more than welcome to come see machines fail in humorous ways. Prizes will be based in part on the number of racers, but there’ll be buckets of swag, other goodies yet to be determined, and at least a month’s free membership if we get 10 racers. Odds are that everyone will get something swanky.

You need not be a member to participate.
