Friendship Triathalon: Flugtag (2 of 3)

The second leg of the National Friendship Day Triathalon was FLUGTAG. For those not in 'the know,' Flugtag means "Fly Day" in German. It is essentially an event sponsored by Red Bull energy drink where teams build aircrafts that are pushed off of a platform and rated on how well they fly. Most don't fly and fall... in this case, into the Inner Harbor.

It was super crowded, so although we watched a number of them 'launch,' it was hard to get photos. Here's a shot of the purple people eater.




Here's a flying goose and dancers.

This year there was a US distance record set in good, 'ole Bawlmer!





After we couldn't take the crowd anymore, we walked over to Federal Hill for libations!

[Partial] group shot!








Jill double chugging.








Rob, Richie and Charissa!








Kelly, Charissa and Dave at the bar.








Jill and Dave did shots at Kelly's friends' house.







Our original plan was to break between the second and third leg of the day, but instead we kept on, keepin' on. Part three coming up next.

Heh. Mad River. That place must have been insanely crowded.

Actually not too bad... it was far enough away from the harbor not to get atrocious. Plus.... we started early. :)
