PORT TOWNSEND, WA – This weekend the twenty plus Kinetic Skulputures competing in the multi-terrain, seven mile 23rd Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Skulpture Race course that zig-zags through the quaint Victorian coastal Pacific Northwest peninsula community will be video blogged (vlog) on the brand spankin’ new Kinetic Universe Video/Photo Blog: http://kineticu.blogspot.com

"Welkome to the Kinetic Skulpture Race" video, the introductory blog post hosted on the free video hosting community YouTube.com, explains the 2005 race in graphic detail: http://www.youtube.com/watch.php?v=mQz6gggOzZc

Free Stonyfield Farm Smoothie coupons will be handed out during the two day event to bribe attendees to share their digital points-of-view with an international audience through the RSS fed Kinetic Universe Video/Photo Blog banners located on the sites sidebar.

On Saturday at around 2:30ish, a Video Blogging and Digital Photo WorkShop will be held at Digital Port Townsend (215 Taylor Street, 2 doors down from the historic Rose Theater) for digital camera attendees of the annual race on Saturday around 2:30ish.

Digital Port Townsend has a Microsoft Media Center PC connected to a Optoma DLP Projector, a Kenwood surround-sound receiver and two tower Athena speakers.

The Video Blogging Workshop will be held after the parade and Brake/Floatation Tests.

The focus of the workshop will be to show attendees that participate in the two-day video and photo blogging contest how to shoot and upload material to the Internet. Flickr.com is the photo repository while YouTube.com will host videos.

About The Greater Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Sculpture Race

In 1983, the Greater Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Sculpture Race was held, making the Port Townsend the third oldest race on the ever-growing Kinetic Racing circuit.

The Port Townsend race still holds to the original values and spirit of the first race held in Ferndale. Relying on grass roots support, the Port Townsend race is one of the few remaining kinetic races that are not owned by a corporation.

It is an independent race, with the volunteer organizers priding themselves on keeping the grass roots "kinetic spirit" alive.
