Float Night Huge Success!

Goggles and a chair couldn't keep this guy afloat!

On August 13, 2010 Float Night at the Long Lake Town Beach drew a great enthusiastic and competitive crowd. 25 teams entered to compete for prizes ranging from a seaplane ride for two to a pizza cruise on Raquette Lake. Some folks got their competitive edge up when one boat (pictured here) arrived with a plastic chair. Judges ruled the chair would be acceptable as it was not considered “flotation savvy” He did manage to stay above water for a competitive period of time, but other contestants definitely had their competitive concerns. Hey… this is vacation, we’re here to have fun!

The first launch

Thanks to the Horseshoe Lounge Playboys who arrived in their bus and played a great set of original Americana bluegrass music beachside.
