Not sure how many paddlers we have here on BoB, but Floatzilla is the weekend of Aug 17th this year.
Basically it's an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most number of paddled craft in the same spot at once. Of course there's more too it than that, but they've been doing it the past few years in the Mississippi River and last year had 1600 or 1700 some odd paddlers in there. It is held in conjunction with a concert and ribfest in the area. Anyhow I'll be there this year and if anyone who lives in IL, IA, MO wants to come....or anyone else for that matter we can hang out at the camp site and smoke a pipe. For infor look up Floatzilla on facebok or go to:
Hope to see some of y'all there. Just as a bribe, if you're going to be there let me know and I'll bring a tin of Frog Morton for you.
