2nd Annual Easter Peeps Regatta

Easter means many things to me. There is the ushering in of warmer days, tulips, dyed eggs, chocolate bunnies and . . . the annual Peeps Regatta!

Despite the cool, gray weather, a small group gathered for an Easter brunch and the 2nd Annual Peeps Regatta.

Last year's winner, Sam, was not there to defend his title, so it was anyone's game. Even though it was a breezy day, the winds didn't seem to translate into a significant pool current, so Bret graciously offered to "aid" the competitors by swirling the water with the pool net. Even still, the peeps were off to a rather slow pace with a few peeps even grossly off-course, hanging out in the middle of the pool.

In the end, the winning trophy went to the Samantha. Although a rookie, she didn't seem intimidated by her older competitors.

For the rest of us, we've got an entire year to work out our strategy for the next regatta. And we can now confidently rule out adding toothpicks or jelly beans to your peep as a winning tactic.
