Fred Goldstein 75 recalls the very limited rules of the Braims Pond water derbies: Cheating was required. Of course, a rule that requires cheating tends to contradict itself, but that was the spirit of the derbies. We were not into competitive sportsor excessive sobriety, for that matter. The derby was something fun and creative to do after the ice had melted and before finals.
Joel Keener 76 says the event was inspired by the art program and captained by Professor John Cunningham. We made the watercraft from nonboating materials, so many sank on launch, while a few made it all the way across the pond and back. It was a blast.
By the way, Kathy Bradley Donohue 86 is pretty sure thats John OToole 84 paddling in the foreground; but Adele Einhorn 80 is guessing its Andrew Philbrick 80, and Matt Rosen 76 recognizes him as Doug McKelway 77. Will the real mystery man please stand up?
