Chariot Races

Today's Caledon Relay for Life event, sponsored by Erasmus Margulis and Autopilotpatty Poppy and DJ'd by Marcus Tairov, was a series of Roman Chariot Races, divided into "human powered," "steam powered," and "mechanical." We started with a little dancing:

Then followed the races. The spectators, including Marcus Tairov and Scotti Lyle, looked on (with my lovely toga courtesy of Miss Katrina Pugilist):
A steam-powered chariot from Mr. Thadicus Caligari:
Miss Poppy's seahorse chariot:

And, last, but not least, Mr. Caligari's mechanical chariot next to DrBob Margulies' tiny chariot:
Of course, the point was to benefit RFL, but a good time was had by all. Even when Miss Poppy flattened Mr. Margulis' chariot - the poor guy never had a chance!
