For our latest mission we turned a carousel into a horse race. A single jockey was joined by two announcers, a roaring crowd, and a trumpeter. The children on the carousel had no idea what was going on. The mission took place at Le Carrousel in New York’s Bryant Park.
I came up with this idea almost six years ago. It has always lingered on our list of potential upcoming missions, and this summer I decided it was time to make it happen. The original idea was to have a dozen jockeys take over a carousel. I sent out an email to our New York Agents List looking for people over 16, under 125 pounds, and under 5’6”. The response was great, and I had more than enough volunteers.
