Scott Air Force Base held their 5th Annual Boat Regatta on Friday morning at the Fitness Center pool.  Several hundred people turned out for the event which was sponsored by the Outdoor Recreation staff. They gave out awards based on fastest teams, most creative design, best dressed team/boat, and even an award for "Dramatic Fastest Sinking Boat". Boats had to be constructed entirely from cardboard and duct tape and about half of them sank during the racing. The USO provided free hot dogs, chips, and soda for people watching - or racing. The "Magic School Bus" wasn't magical enough, as it starts to tip over and dump its occupants into the pool. The bottom of the bus came apart and caused the sinking.
