Going LocalIn a continuing collaboration with Scott over at Straight to the Bar, we will be writing about some things that you might be able to do locally throughout the month of April.
Red Bull Flug Tug
This week, Scott gets things started by discussing the Red Bull Flugtug. Basically, a bunch of crazy people put together contraptions that are meant to be thrown off of a 6 meter high ramp into the water.

Unlike most sports where whoever jumps the highest, runs the fastest, or throws the furthest wins, the flug tug only marginally worries about how far each team manages to “fly” their vessel from the ramp. Thousands of people cheer on each team no matter how well their contraptions work.

There are competitions in over 20 cities across the globe. Have you ever been to one near you? I’ll admit, this is the first that I’ve heard of it.
