IMPORTANT. Like actually and seriously.

This year’s Regatta will meet directly at Kaw Point. We shall meet on Saturday 6-29-13, because nobody else came up with a better date. We’ll convene at 3:00 p.m. and hope to launch by 3:30-ish.

As always, boats are encouraged to be either amphibious or bike-towed, but it’s totally understandable if the weight of awesomeness in your craft requires a motor vehicle to get it to and from the launch. If you do drive, it’s up to you to arrange for a recovery vehicle at Glow In The Dark Park.

Again, as always, you MUST wear a life jacket. Ideally, one which could actually support your weight if you do tip into the drink. But, as we consider this a voluntary-participation event, if you do choose to wear insufficient life safety equipment and suffer dire consequences because of it, you can’t say you weren’t warned!

As is traditional, drinking PRIOR to launch is prohibited.  This and the lifejacket thing are literally the only things I consider non-negotiable.  I don’t care how shitfaced you get at the end of the float – in fact, I heartily encourage liberal consumption of grog at the after party, but please, please, please, do not sail drunk.

Well, I think that’s about it. If anyone has any questions or comments (even if they are snarky or silly) feel free to fire ’em off below.
