Bloomsday Corporate Cup team name finalists announced

SPOKANE, Wash. - Competition on the streets of Spokane among teams in the Bloomsday Corporate Cup may be still a month away, but a few teams have already humored their way to the front of the pack. A group of Bloomsday sponsors and organizers have conferred and announced this year's finalists for the Corporate Cup "Best Team Name" contest.

Of the nearly 300 teams entered in the Corporate Cup Competition, the finalists (see below) have been whittled down to only 23. The team names range from Coffman Engineers' "Geeks in Sneaks" to Group Health's "Running On Empathy." The first, second, and third place names will be announced after Bloomsday in the Souvenir Results Booklet distributed by The Inlander.

"Every year it's clear that a lot of thought goes into the selection of team names, and this year is no different," remarked Corporate Cup Director Carol Hunter. "It's too bad we can only select one winner, because there are dozens of great names."

"Run Forest Run" of the P.O.V. Ranger District won last year's team name contest, beating out "May It Please The Course" of Workland & Witherspoon and "Running With The Current" of Inland Power & Light, who placed second and third, respectively.

Although registration is now closed for the Corporate Cup competition, runners still have time to register for Bloomsday. Mailed entry forms for the low $15 entry fee must be postmarked by midnight, April 13th, while online entrants have until Sunday, April 18th to do so. Late entries for the $30.00 fee will be accepted online from April 19th through the 25th, and at the Bloomsday Trade Show the weekend of May 1st. No entries will be accepted Sunday, May 2nd.

    KHQ.COM - Most mothers can only hope by the time their children grow up and move out of the house, they've learned all the necessary things to be a successful adult, including the basic knowledge that a turkey must be cooked in an oven, or perhaps in a smoker... NOT in a microwave. For this reason a new prank-challenge going around on Facebook is resulting in some hilarious text conversations between mothers and their grown children.
