No, your eyes are not deceiving you.  A German ski resort is, in fact, planning to hold a topless tobogganing competition next month.  However, not all parties involved are supporting the event.  The Mayor of the town where the race is being held opposes the idea, and said the only way he found out about it was after he saw a flyer that advertised it.  Property owners at the resort are worried that the event will attract large amounts of men, and that children will see the topless women while they are out sledding.  The organizer of the event, Jochen Noeske, says that it “will attract tourists, definitely more than 10,000″ and that the girls can wear bikinis if they choose.
