In Non-Boating News...Hobart Relay for Life

This Friday Ben and I are walking from 6pm to noon on Saturday for the Relay for Life in Hobart. It's an overnight event at the Hobart Brickie Bowl. We were looking for ways to get more involved in our community, so we decided to start our own team and invite our friends and family to join! So far we've raised about $1200... but we still have this week to reach our team goal of $2000.

The theme of this year's Relay is Carnival for a Cure.  I'll have a face painting booth set up, we'll have some fun kids games, and my dad is baking brownies & cookies to sell for fundraising! :-)

If anyone would like to join our team, you don't have to commit to being there the whole night. We'd love it if you could just come by for a few hours, or just stop in and play some games!

(In more boating related news - we are looking forward to driving straight to the boat for some time on the lake Saturday!)

UPDATE: The Relay for Life was a success! We had a great night making new friends, painting faces & most importantly, raising money for the American Cancer Society.
