Team Tartan Takes the Cup: Leukemia Cup Regatta 2019 is YOURS

Leave a comment

Ten years of sailing the Leukemia Cup was crowned by another fundraising win thanks to you. We’re super pleased to announce that our final fundraising total (in our first “post baby” race) is $74,829 (a mere $171 from $75,000). That means the Leukemia Cup is Yours! A huge thanks to all of our 90+ donors.

Extra special red hat thanks goes to our stalwart supporter Phil Venables who donated an incredible $50,000 this year.

Team Tartan before the day

The morning started early as it always does in a regatta. On the water, our rusty sailing took over and we were clobbered in every race. Remind us that when your co-captains have a baby, they spend much more time changing diapers than sailing!

Art in the Corner

Ever since we moved to this property in 2002, I have wanted to use one of the old rusted farm implements as an art piece. 17 years later, here is the piece pretty much exactly how I imagined it. The rock slab is a 2500 pound bluestone slab from Pennsylvania. Getting that properly staged was a thing, but it all went surprisingly smoothly.

With age does not always wisdom come. But, fun it was! We had a crazy-cold week that froze the river, and now a crazy-warm day to test out the water.  Nice.

Mogli leads the way.

The mic on my phone was broken, but just imaging the sound of crunching ice.

Time for a break.

Here, imagine geese honking their displeasure! and ice popping as it melts. Hit ‘play’ and it is not upside down.

Sweet Mogli has captured a hunk of ice to take home! (Video is correct when plays)

Burn Baby Burn: 2017 Winter Solstice Fire

Cerbe meets mogli before dark

Music. Great food. Huge fire. Friends. Boilo. What more could you want?

Early birds get to see the lighting

Mmmmmm. Beer.

The lighting

Put it in perspective: 100 feet of flame.

This year the fairy ring of osage oranges turned into a warning line for fire spread. We had to get water buckets and a hose out for the first time ever.

The fire spreads

View from the field

The two (or three) pods making up the solstice party are always a good mix. Food and cheesy Christmas music in the barn. Fire and live music in the field. This year some of the real music moved into the barn during a brief rain.
