Skipping their way to national glory

I know the Bainbridge Island Ropeskippers as those friendly servers of chili and baked potatoes at the midway on the Chilly Hilly bike ride.

Turns out they really do skip ropes, and do it quite well.

The team is competing in the U.S. National Jump Rope Championship in Galveston, Texas next month. They’ll perform in several categories, from speed jumping to freestyle.
