Cardboard boat race this weekend

Here in Tempe, AZ, we’re having a “Rotary River Rally,” or cardboard boat race. It’s never too late to register a boat, and it looks like so much fun. The pre-event boat show is today, and the regatta starts tomorrow morning. This is the 9th year they’re running this, so it makes me wonder how many cardboard boats are at the bottom of the lake! (Thanks, Matt!)

    The company I work for will be there this weekend. Last year was fun, we had an interesting Egyptian theme. The weather is perfect, thanks for reminding me!
