Me neither, but there's a first time for everything! On Saturday, June 17 at 11:00 a.m., bring your boat and crew to the Waypoint at DeSoto Marina (120 Marina Road) for the weirdest race you'll ever be in! Build your boat from just cardboard, duct tape, and one-part substance paint and find out if it is seaworthy. Registration is $15 per boat plus tax and includes one t-shirt, although extras are available to purchase for $10 each.

Each crew must provide their own life jackets and paddles. Win fabulous prizes if your team can secure the title of fastest time, most creative, or best costumes of the crew. Learn more about the race by calling Waypoint at DeSoto Marina at 501-922-5511. Buy your registration ticket online here.

As drive-in theaters have become less and less common, some different settings are being employed to replicate the classic drive-in tradition. For instance, in a few weeks you can watch the beloved Ferris Bueller's Day Off at the Magellan Golf Course Driving Range!
