OK, I thought this looked like fun when I saw the sign and thought I'd check it out online. I assumed that pickle bucket boats would be small toy boats made of pickle buckets. Not so my friends. The contest is to build actual, human carrying boats made of pickle buckets. How cool is that? There's a human powered boat race, a creativity race, a kids race, a 5-man team race, a battery powered boat race and a race for civic groups.
We are definitely attending this one! Hopefully in future years we can put together a team and participate. In my kooky circle of friends finding enough people for a pickle boat racing team won't be much of a challenge.
