2024 LTPO Flotilla!

2024 Flotilla Theme

All Things Indiana


You may ask what type of slogan can be used for our Flotilla this year? Glad you did ask. Here are a few Indiana related ideas.   Indy 500 – Brickyard – Colts – Pacers – All Indiana colleges!!

There are many more creative topics and with a little research you’ll find something that gets your creative juices flowing.

It’s okay to have a family personalized float. But also consider having your landing come together and decorate a float that promotes the landing name. The mission is to have as many floaters participate and keep with the theme.

Registration will be on July 6 from 10 am to 11:30 am at the Patona Bay Snack Shop. The Flotilla will hit the water on July 6 at 1:00 PM. Plan to meet lakeside at Patona Bay Snack Shop. The Flotilla will tour much of Lake Tippecanoe and will take approximately 1 1/2 hours before returning to Paton’s for the award presentation. No one walks away empty handed. Cash awards are handed out to all registered participants.

The Flotilla rules are simple. Be on time. Stay in line and obey the directions of the patrol boats. It is prohibited to throw any promotional items from a float or shore.

Do not jump from your float while in line.

Be safe, have fun and wave.

2023 Flotilla Winners

While mother nature did not treat this year’s Flotilla kindly, I can honestly say the modest turnout was met with enthusiasm and smiles by those participating in the festivities and watching from boats and shore.


#1 – Suzanne Lyon with the theme TIPPY FIRE FIGHTER WOMEN

#2 – Charles K. Joyner with the theme of FIRE TRUCK

#3 – Lisa Finch with the theme of IMPD – FINCH FAMILY HEROS

Not to be left out several floaters also walked away with cash awards.

If it was not for Kathy Woodsmall and B.K. Turner judging the event I would have been lost. They made some crucial decisions since all floaters are winners. Thank you for your time and effort.

Special recognition goes out to Patona Bay for the use of an awesome pontoon. Ace Hardware in No. Webster, The Mail Journal and Kosciusko Sheriff Department.


I’m particularly fond of this year’s theme of Honoring First Responders. Those courageous women and men must be recognized as superheroes.


The 2024 Flotilla theme will be announced in the near future. Its concept is under strict non-disclosure. However, any ideas are welcome.

A Wave Away,

Flotilla Chairman – Dan Drook
