Four-peat for The Grove Spot
There were a lot of new teams this year, new Grove businesses like Sapient Nitro and Jaguar Therapy were winners and lots of the Grove bars and restaurants participated, too. Sapient, in fact, caused in upset in that they won first place in the Corporate Division, knocking the Grove 5-0 cops down to 2nd place, after they held the honor for so many years.
Top winners, again, for the fourth year were the hunks from The Grove Spot. They won the Men's division and all around top award for speed. Jon Weislow, far right, the only original member of the team, says he is retiring after this year. So it will be a whole new team next year. Can they keep up the winning>
The Olfactory Company did a spectacular job with two beds, that they raced against each other, but at a walk, not at a run. They were gothic and perfect in their costumes and at intermission, they broke out into a multi-song flash mob, which thrilled everyone.

1st place - The Grove Spot (and overall race winners)
2nd place - Jaguar Therapy
1st place - Sandbar (again for another year)
2nd place - Miss Florida
1st place - Royal Caribbean Cruiseline
2nd place - Mac Cycle
