Yes, those are some kind of dumbells (not referring to the team members), attached to both sides of that apparatus that is supposed to fly. Instead most entries plummet into the channel. For safety reasons, flying would be dangerous to the speactators onshore and in the hundreds of boats in the channel. Red Bull's International Flugtag makes its way around the globe with only one stop in the United States this year - which was Tampa. Record spectators and boats. No rain. The Tampa Police divers made quick work of diving into the channel, retrieving and removing the inventions post flight. The city of Tampa was impressively showcased. Tampa is the only U.S. city that had the privilege of hosting the Flugtag twice. It was a good day.
We organized this event for our members who asked for a family outing. So please bring friends and family for some creativity in a relaxing atmosphere. This is also a chance for some of us to laugh encouragingly at our colleagues. Tony is diligently working on his designs. Angelina's daughter may have some competition. Unlikely.
