Saturday, May 15th
Races begin at High Noon
Problem: To build a manned vessel made from the construction of cardboard. It must be maneuverable and stay afloat for 25 yards.
Solution: Grab a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 of most creative, adventurous and fun-loving friends or family members to participate in this crazy, exciting Cardboard Regatta at Valiant Pool. Boats can only be made of cardboard. Joints and seams may be glued and/or taped. Duct tape, contact cement, rubber cement, or construction adhesive may be used. Decorations are encouraged – but cannot aid in floatation. A great STEM/STEAM team project! This is a great way to sharpen skills in building and designing boats for the ultimate test in the waters.
Trophies will be given for best decorated boat, best boat design and best EPIC Titanic (sinking) moment. Trophies will also be awarded for the fastest in the age categories – Youth (12 and under), high school (13 – 18), adult (19 and older) and seasoned (55+).
Lifeguards will be on duty during all races and lifejackets must worn during the race.
Fee is $10 per team.
Rules and a list of “tips” is on the City of Bay City’s web site under Parks and Recreation Events.
An event you won’t wanna miss!
