Are You Up To the Challenge?

The popular favorite Jeff Baumann Annual Cardboard Canoe Race returns to the Meadows Celebration again this year. In this event, teams are tasked with building a seaworthy craft using only the tools provided to them—cardboard, packing tape and a razor knife. Each two- to three-person team has 40 minutes in which to construct their canoe.
When the building is done, that’s when the fun really begins. Teams are pitted against each other in timed heats. Spectators cheer them on as they battle to be the first to make it to the other side of the pond. The team with the best time wins first prize—and all the glory!
Test your creativity, teamwork skills and paddling ability with this fun competition. Pre-registration is strongly recommended. The competition will be limited to the first 10 teams who register. Registration forms can be found at DeWitt Township Hall prior to the event or on the DeWitt Township Web site. The Headquarters Tent will also have pre-registration until 5 p.m. or until the limit has been reached, whichever comes first.
Participants must be 18 years or older. Complete rules are available at DeWitt Township Hall or on the DeWitt Township site.
