Cardboard Regatta; Watkins Glen Famous Race!!! LOL

Saturday, June 29, 2013

Guden Morgen! lol... i just woke about an hour ago! i guess i was kinda tired.

watching the WatkinsGlen Cardboard Regatta; it's Always fun, n' the names of the boats are even better than some of the designs; one this year is called
emoticon Cirrhosis Of The River..LOL...
a couple have several tiers, and others are completely flat; they're made of cardboard, duct tape, glue, n' paint, LOL... one is made like a Party boat, n' doesn't have Any! duct tape; we'll see how they go! ~k, now one is coming apart as they launch, LOL.. too bad it's only on a BigFox local channel!
here are some other names: emoticon Boxed Wine, emoticon Heavy Chevy,
emoticon Liquid Wisdom X, emoticon Miss Warthog,
emoticon Neversink III, emoticon Oversized Load,
emoticon Paper Buoy, emoticon Redneck Yacht Club, emoticon Sea Biscuit,
emoticon Sea Hogg, emoticon Shark Bait II, emoticon The Carpet Cruisers,
emoticon The Crazily Cool Contrary Cliffords,
emoticon The Inituinit Tribe, & emoticon The Master of Disaster!
I wish i had some pics to put up for us! OHHH, Sea Buscuit just totally wiped out n' over!!

as you can probably tell, i'm having a suweet! 'day off'... but i gotta go mow the garden aisles now before it pours again; they're getting higher than the garden beds, which 'r already raised!
emoticon L8r!

ps OMG 'Slopokes' is shaped like a real Jeep, n' hot pink; but they're making progress in a reverse position; think a floating pink jeep, backing up! LOL emoticon
ooo, ooo, here's a link at least to past years' event:

hahaha, apparently the only real requirements is to wear a safety vest n' anywayUcan, get across the finish line; even if you're swimming n' draggin' a piece of your boat!

wow, ppl entering have been from Vegas, Philly, n' Boston; n' this year one has two foreign exchange students on their crew, from France n' Italy! emoticon

    I saw one of these regattas in St. Louis at Forest Park. We laughed so much and had such a great time....it seemed as if everyone was just having fun and not worrying too much about who won.
