2016 Kansas City Trashboat Regatta

23 06 2016

The Regatta returns for another rubbish-raft river float of soggy, boggy adventure on August 7, 2016.  Following back-to-back with Singlespeed KC 2016, brace yourself for a weekend of lo-budget dirtball good times.

Meet us at Kaw Point at 1:00 p.m. for launch. Landing at Riverfront Park in the East Bottoms around 3:00-ish.

Expect the usual – Prizes.  Lots of prizes, many of them terrible.  Food.  Drink.  Irreverent attitudes toward good taste.  No bagpipes.  Bragging rights.  Strange things floating in the water.

The other thing I have for you today is the following:

Wave Rats
They’re wave rats. Doing the Wave. Somehow, I feel that waverats are the spiritual animal of the Trashboat Regatta. Feel free to “catch some” for your own nefarious purposes…right-click, “save as.”
