Team CalTrans at the Kinetic Grand Championship

This year’s Pineapple CalTrans was a solid gold wrecking crew! We cleaned up with the Biggest Splash and 1st Place in Engineering trophies, plus we had a blast pretending to be a road work crew. Lisa is actually a CalTrans employee, which we did not know when we picked the theme, but she was able to give us some tips.

Things got a little sketchy on the water, as they sometimes do, but we made good time, and the paddlewheels kept us jamming along. (photo by Tina Kerrigan)


Team CalTrans was outstanding. We had a tremendous amount of support during the race, and Patricia Algara provided amazing logistics and lodging. We could not have made it to Ferndale without everyone involved, including little TransMutation and his dance. (Finish line photo by Matt Filar)caltrans 2018 filar.jpg
