2020 Running of the Balls ~captured live

Typically, spectators would line up to watch golf balls take over the street in Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary’s “Running of the Balls,” on the third Saturday in May, just before the Rhododendron Festival Grand Parade. But not this year, but the 8th annual “Running of the Balls” had to go on!
 
In wake of the Rhododendron Festival Grande Parade being cancelled we took it to a completely different level. One of our members, Chuck Henry, created a turning bins contraption that tossed the numbered tickets around and the “Bull” himself, (or was it herself?) drew the three winning tickets out of the bin. 
 
Grand Prize was $2000 in cash, second place is $500 in cash, and third place is $250 in cash.
