Oh Geeze, Sorry. Flugtag.

4 Aug

So anyway, um, seems I totally forgot about this, but I did in fact attend the Flugtag at Harriet Island in St. Paul a few weeks ago. For those who still don’t know what this is, it boils down to a bunch of teams of people (or idiots depending on your outlook) who try to build contraptions to break the bonds of this mortal earth and soar into the lofty heights of the great blue sky. Like that? Yeah, it was pretty sweet to write. Anyway, I have a ton of pictures of the event, but won’t be putting all of them up here simply because there are so many. I will put some of them up and you can judge for yourself – what are you judging? I have no idea, decide that for yourself as well I guess.

Overall, the event was free and the weather was perfect. I have probably contracted skin cancer of some sort from not wearing sunscreen or a hat, but it was worth it (if, in fact, skin cancer can be worth it I suppose). Also, a new world record was set. Did you read that! A WORLD FREAKING RECORD! The world record smashing flight went for 207 feet, beating the old record of 195 feet.
