Our annual Sandbar float-building extravaganza has finally begun, a little behind schedule this year.

We have a new space to build our creation this year. Good thing, since we outgrew Dave's yard several years ago. And our new space is indoors, with heat and running water, so we don't freeze to death.

The boys have decided to mark their progress this year not by how big the float structure is, but rather by their beer can structure:

Check back tomorrow for an inside look at float building from one of our experienced crew members.
