Cardboard Boats

After popping in on a friend CGW to check out her amazing garden this morning, we headed to Crystal Lake for the 25th annual Cardboard Cup Regatta this afternoon. After a tiara clad Miss Crystal Lake stamped our hands we were in!
I had never heard of such a thing before, but these crazy boats were a sight to behold!

Each creative entry was made almost entirely out of cardboard and raced in groups on a 200 yard course. Each crew of 2-10 racers had to navigate through several obstacles including a band of saboteurs on the water armed with water cannons and water balloons!

Check out some on the entries...

This boat inspired by the film UP was my favorite. Of course it's name was "down" and I think it may have been a self fulfilling prophecy...
