Whose Big Basket in the Lake at the Cheese Factory?

We've had some crazy requests to do events on the Cheese Factory grounds through the years, although this past weekend was one of our more wacky ones. Lawrence Batterton from Woodacre emailed us to see if he could float test a giant Picnic Basket in the lake, which he is racing in the upcoming Kinetic Grand Championship," the Triathlon of the Art World." The race, which goes from Arcata to Ferndale, is 41 miles long and covers sand dunes, bridges and even the Humboldt Bay. It is quite an event, taking place Memorial Day Weekend. They arrived with a team of people and put the 14 feet long by 7 feet wide basket in the water. Success!!!
