Crazy Cardboard Boat Regatta at West Chester's VOA Park July 14 2012
Duct Tape. Check.
Paint & creativity. Check.
Ability to swim??? You just might want this one if you plan to participate in tomorrow's Metropark's Voice of America Crazy Cardboard Regatta Saturday July 14th!
They did so well last year they're back for the 3rd annual Crazy Cardboard Regatta, and this flimsy flotilla has a mission! They're raising funds for a playground for disabled visitors! Doesn't that just fire all your cannons?? Woo hoo, let's get underway mateys!!!!
And besides the racing, did we mention they're having a demolition category? Last boat afloat wins! A demolition derby on the waves, we're expecting total chaos for this one!
Boats have to negotiate a 200 yard course on the VOA Park's 35 acre lake on the north side of VOA Park.
With two categories, "Need for Speed" and "Show Boats", the judging can be fair to each type of boat. And you're going to witness some pretty elaborate work too!
Boats can check in Friday 4-6 or Saturday morning 7-9.
The event will include a children's area with games and activities.
Then on Saturday July 14th the boats get down to business! The activities start at 10 a.m., with racing from noon to 2 p.m. and the Demolition event after. There'll be live music starting at 3 p.m.
Admission to the event itself is free, but you'll need a Butler County Parks Motor Vehicle Permit. For non-Butler County residents, that's $10/annual pass or $5/day. You can purchase at the park.
And it's NOT too late to enter! Entries are being accepted at metroparksofbutlercounty.org until the day of the event. Registration forms, rules, boat building instructions and more are available at the website. You can also call 513.867.5835 for further details. Don't forget the Hold Harmless form too!
