Last week was UALR’s homecoming!  Last year UALR started the Homecoming Boat Regatta.  It’s a lot of fun.  A bunch of teams build cardboard boats and then you stick them in the pool and see if you sink.

Last year we made it most of the course and then sank, but this year we were much more confident.  I mean look at this boat!

The Beast

We put the boat in the water.  And then this happened!

It didn't last long

We sank…immediately.  But that’s okay because we climbed on top and started to paddle.  We didn’t get very far, but it was still fun.  It was great! I’m so glad that I’ve been able to participate in the boat races two years in a row.

Our crew!
