Bathtub Racing

Bathtub racing started in Nanaimo, British Columbia and involves the use of a bathub boat. The first races began with the "Nanaimo to Vancouver Great International World Championship Bathtub Race" in 1967. The idea was conceived to showcase Nanaimo to the world. Frank Ney, Nanaimo's Mayor at the time, was an avid participant and would regularly dress as a pirate and tour the town and surrounding communities. Frank Ney was one of the largest supporters and promoters of the annual race until his death in 1992. Until the 1990s, tubbers raced from Nanaimo to Vancouver's Kitsilano Beach, the race now involves a course beginning in Nanaimo Harbour and ending at Departure Bay. The race is held the last weekend of July every year. Because of the race, Nanaimo is sometimes known as the Hub, Pub, and Tub city.

Other cities now hold bathtub races, but the Nanaimo event continues to be the most widely known.

The most intuitive and easy-to-use web application since Gmail

TeamSnap is my new favorite website. Beyond its sheer handiness, TeamSnap is the most intuitive and easy-to-use Web application since Gmail. A half-drunk lobotomized chimp could register a team. And probably play shortstop." —Margaret Lyons, TimeOut Chicago

It works on any budget

"Managing a team for co-ed, intramural or beer league sports can be a tricky thing. Tracking down team members, arranging and sharing game time and location information, and keeping track of who's paid what and who's in need of equipment or uniforms or things like that can all present quite a challenge. TeamSnap takes a lot of that trickiness out of the process, and there's a free plan, so it works on any budget."—Darrell Etherington, Web Worker Daily

You can even customize it

"Online team management software, such as TeamSnap, let you know who will and won't be at a specific game, who's bringing snack, and who's paid their registration fees. You can even customize it to keep track of uniform sizes and more!"—Emily Cohen, Youth Soccer Insider
