Round Rock the Boat Regatta this Saturday!

Round Rock the Boat Regatta takes place this Saturday, May 15 on the lake at Old Settlers Park. The pits will open at 10:00am and the races begin at noon! Come cheer on your favorite boat/team and see who will float, sink or swim at this family fun event. Contestants make boats out of cardboard and tape and rely on their inventions to keep them afloat as they travel across the lake at Old Settlers Park.
The fastest boats have the opportunity to compete in the finals.

All participants have a chance to win one of the following awards:

• That can’t be made of cardboard! Award
• Titanic Award—Most spectacular sinking
• Fast and Furious Award—Best time
• Who cares about the boat…we look good!
• People’s Choice Award—Prettiest Boat … Doesn’t have to float.
• Tiny Tim—Smallest boat finishing the race
• Big Bertha—Largest boat finishing the race

Hey, This sounds like a lot of fun wish I was there! I would have brought my one sheet skiff. She is a beauty - I would have won something for sure!
