Here's a Sculpture!

Wheel of (Mis)Fortune

From Team 1,800 Lbs came their latest, Wheel of Misfortune, with prize-labeled spinning wheels on both sides.

Pilots and crew were Vanna and contestants.

A key to success on the water is having a lot of extra buoyancy. You can tell these people know what they’re doing, as half their pontoons are out of the water—leaving plenty of extra flotation as weight, wind, and current shift.

A judge spun the wheel 3 times and each time hit “Bankrupt”. His prize was a wheel-segment award of a lifetime membership in Baltimore’s Enoch Pratt Free Library, earning Wheel of (Mis)Fortune the Best Bribes award.

Other prizes they awarded included unlimited pet rats, a free trash can from the City, a free swimming lesson in the Inner Harbor, and a free ride on the Charm City Circulator.

Pilots heaved the wheels through the sand without assistance,…

although a great deal of pushing was required at the mud.

This is the tenth annual entry from mighty Team 1,800 Lbs:
