So…as hard as it is to believe, there are some people who just don’t feel comfortable floating down the Missouri river on a raft made of trash. Search me. Sounds like a mighty large time, if you ask me.

But the fact remains that there are people who aren’t into actually sailing a trashboat, but do love trashboats all the same. For those people who want to participate without actually getting trashy, there are options.

1. There will be a bike ride that parallels the river. So, air up your old Schwinn and meet up with us at Korruption. There will be various spectating points along the way, and you’ll get to the finish just ahead of the regatta for a royal view of the majestic craft landing at Glow In The Dark Park.

2. You could always get on the river on a boat not made of trash. Canoes, kayaks, rowboats, or rafts are all welcome, appropriate, and fun. Kayaks are really the best, as you can easily paddle back and forth amongst the participants and personally check out how everyone’s faring.

3. If you’re driving down to Glow In The Dark Park, either as a return vehicle for your canoe/kayak/trashboat, or because you’re not feeling like biking in what will probably be 90F+ heat, think about bringing coolers of ice/water/etc. We pirates are going to try to bring some of our own grog and hardtack for the crew; the more we share, the more we….something.

If you have any questions about how to get there or whatever else, hit the comment button.

Hope to see many smilin’ faces out there.
