Rudy Bittle, 6, of Carbondale, reacts to Carterville High School’s entry in the 43rd Annual Great Cardboard Boat Regatta alongside his father, Tony, on Saturday at the Carbondale Reservoir at Evergreen Park. The students’ boat, “CHS Shaftner,” drew momentum from the peddling of a stationary bike affixed in the middle of the vessel. Tony said he and his family attend the regatta every year and Rudy hopes to compete next year. — April 30, 2016, Carbondale, Ill.
