Cardboard boat races to raise money for Oglesby swimming pool

Posted by wlpo on July 25, 2016

Could you make a boat that floats using only cardboard, duct tape and rubber cement? Put your engineering skills to the test this Friday in Oglesby.

The city is hosting a “Cardboard Cup Race” at the city swimming pool with races starting at 4:30. Trophies will be handed out to the fastest boat, most creatively designed boat and to the boat which has the most spectacular sinking. That award is called the “Titanic Award.”

It’s $20 per boat with proceeds going to pay for repairs at the Oglesby pool. For more information about the cardboard boat races in Oglesby, click Oglesby Cardboard Boat Races
