Range hotel housekeepers to zig, zag, clean for sport

Hotel housekeepers will compete in some sort of gladiator pageantry on the Iron Range later this Morning morning. There will be a color guard. And I do mean American flag, not laundry. So many feelings. Experience the press release with me.

Clean, fold and go for the gold!
Iron Range hotel hosts seventh annual Housekeeping Olympics

WHAT: The Hibbing Park Hotel will host the 7th annual Iron Range Housekeeping Olympics. Housekeeping teams from lodging properties across the Iron Range will participate in laundry folding, bed making and the popular obstacle course race.

The Housekeeping Olympics begins with a parade of competitors and official opening ceremonies, complete with a presentation of the flag by the American Legion Color Guard. The games include timed events in bed making and laundry folding and the grand finale and fan favorite: the obstacle course, where teams wind their way through a course with a maid cart. They have to zig-zag through a maze of cones, stop to scrub toilets and shower stalls, make beds and race to the finish line. A presentation of awards concludes the event.

The Co-Masters of Ceremonies this year are local entertainer Shannon Gunderson and Jim Currie, President/ CEO of the Laurentian Chamber of Commerce.

WHEN: Monday, September 12 at 11:00 a.m.

WHERE: Hibbing Park Hotel
1402 East Howard Street
Hibbing, Minnesota 55746

WHY: The Olympics are held in conjunction with International Housekeepers Week. Organizers say they’re a fun way to show appreciation for a job that often goes unrecognized. This annual tradition fosters friendships among employees of different hotels and businesses across the area.
