2015 ZAPPOS Cardboard Regatta
Well the 2015 Zappos Cardboard Regatta was BIGGER and BETTER than 2104 (and that was a hard act to follow!!!)
We had 26 entrants (actually we had another 10 boats drop out at the last minute!!)
They were VERY Creative this year, so much so that we had to have a TIE because the judges could not pick a clear winner it was so close!!
Local TV reality stars the Brown family of the Sister Wives competed, filming the entire process for their show! The Regatta is becoming an awesome part of Pirate Fest!!
We have two divisions Dingy Class (1 or 2 crew members), Corsair Class (3 or more).
In each Class we have 3 trophies: Fastest Boat, Most Creative, and the Davy Jones Award (for the BEST sinking!!) The trophies are unique works of art as each is hand crafted by one of our own vendors, Andrea Steinmuller of Another Realm.These are not a trophy that will just gather dust in back office!
So the winners are?? (drum roll please....)
Corsair: Allegiant Airlines
Dingy: Meadow Mall
Corsair: TIE (it was just too close to call)
The Sister Wives and Zarkana
The DAVY JONES AWARD
Dingy: Pirates of Pop (The Regatta's ONLY TWO TIME WINNER)
Corsair: We had an issue....NO 3 man boat sank!!! However we were lucky in that another group had both a 1 man boat and a 2 man boat. Fortunately for us they BOTH sank and both did it in style!!! So the Corsair award was given to the team at ZAPPOS!
CONGRATULATIONS to EVERYONE who competed. Please go to the Zappos Cardboard Regatta tab for all the details and to see pictures of all the winners and the other GREAT Competitors!!
