Kudos to Kops

The Kinetic Kops do krowd kontrol for the Kinetic Sculpture Race. Mostly to keep spectators, especially spectators with cameras, from being run over. Some of these machines are large and heavy and may not stop on a dime. Some of them went down to the water fast, gathering momentum, with spectators lining the way. People get distracted by the costumes and glitter and forget that these are built to climb hills, go through mud, go on water, human powered.

So Kudos to Kinetic Kops for protecting us all!

Varnish makes me think of boats. Wooden boats. We have one group that does not use much varnish: our Kinetic Sculpture racers. Human powered, on land, on sea and through the mud bog. All sizes and shapes and themes. Wonderful!

We have helpers for the teams in the water, and here two kinetic sculptures are making their way to land. The water is a few degrees above 50 and they have to take turns exiting on the ramp. We have Kinetic Kops to protect the public and the racers.

For the Daily Prompt: varnish.
