Each boat of any type that participates must register with Ray and get a balloon color assigned to their boat. We will distribute 3 red balls( in addition to the regular balloons) on the lake and each one represents 5 balloons of any color. We will also distribute 15 black balloons and each represents any color you want them to be. A horn will be blow at dusk (around 8:45 pm) and everyone has 45 minutes to collect all the inflated balloons they can find plus the red balls. You can trade the balloons that are not your assigned color to other boats so do NOT pop them. A horn will be blown at the end of the 45 minutes and all boats must gather at C-Point for the balloon counting and the distribution of the prizes. After the prizes have been distributed, the kids will pop the balloons and throw the remains in the garbage so that C-Point is not cluttered.
