TOWER, Minn. (AP) — Iron Range's top maids will get a chance to "fold for the gold" when they compete in the upcoming Housekeeping Olympics.
Teams from hotels and motels across the Iron Range will compete Monday at the Fortune Bay Resort Casino in Tower. Events include folding linen, stacking laundry and making beds.
The most popular event is the grand finale. Competitors have to navigate an obstacle course with their maid carts. They zigzag through a maze of cones, stop to scrub toilets and shower stalls, make beds and then race to the finish line.
The Olympics are held as part of International Housekeepers Week. Organizers say the games are a fun way to show appreciation for a job that often goes unrecognized.
