Drink Philly Seeks Team Member for Red Bull Flugtag, Sept 15

 

Update:

If you’ve watched even a bit of TV over the past decade you probably know that “Red Bull gives you wings.” But can it make otherwise flightless contraptions air-worthy? That — and having a whole lot of silly fun — is the idea behind Red Bull Flugtag. The annual competition began in 1991 in Vienna, and is now held in over 35 cities around the world.

Flugtag means “flight day” in German, and the event challenges people to build homemade, human-power crafts and pilot them off a 30-foot deck, in the hopes of catching air. Anyone is free to submit an entry, but to gain admission, Red Bull must approve your design. Design is important, because the contest is judged not only on the distance of your craft’s flight, but its creativity and the team’s showmanship as well.

We’re excited to announce Drink Philly will competing in the Philadelphia 2012 Red Bull Flugtag event.  We were honored to be accepted, and are looking forward to zooming off the Camden ramp and sailing high above the Delaware River (for a brief moment). In what will we be making this endeavor? We present to you, THE HINDENFIRKIN!



Our Team:


Adam Schmidt - The Team Captain (Drink Philly President & Founder)
Grant Scavello - The Muscle
Mike Studzienko - The Engineer
Bruce Lewandowski - The Wildcard
Greg Lehman - The Beer

Although our flight team is filled, if you'd like to help Drink Philly in any way in the building of our craft, please contact us.  Also we could use all the encouragement we can get so cheer us on in the comments below.  Team Drink Philly Unite!
