PORT TOWNSEND — Imagination is the only limit.
Charlie Bodony and John Montgomery brought that message and two kinetic sculptures to Blue Heron Middle School to inspire students to design and enter the 20th Kinetic Sculpture Race on Oct. 5 and Oct. 6.
Kinetic sculptures are street-legal human-powered or wind-powered vehicles that must be able to traverse water, mud and sand.
“On (Sunday) April 7, we’ll be launching the design contest,” Bodony said. “We’re challenging them to enter.”
The local Kinetic Sculpture Race Association kicks off the event on the Fort Worden beach at noon with a potluck in the kitchen shelter, followed by a 2 p.m. parade.
Entry forms and design kits will be available.
“Last year, we had six sculptures,” Bodony said. “We’ll put them in the water, weather permitting.”
To get students involved, Bodony and others last year formed the Port Townsend Institute of All Terrain Art.
“The sculpture is secondary,” Bodony said.
“Our main goal is to send kids to school with questions for their geometry teacher.”
