Cardboard Boat Races @ Silver Lake, Dayton

Cardboard Boat Races @ Silver Lake, Dayton | Dayton | Virginia | United States

Cardboard Boat Races, 1pm, Silver Lake, Dayton

Last year’s Cardboard Boat Races were such a hit we’re doing them again! On July 14th at 1pm, teams of two will race their pre-constructed boat made entirely of cardboard, tape, glue, and paint, across Silver Lake.

Completed and signed Registration and Waiver Forms must be submitted to The Town of Dayton, 125B Eastview Street, Dayton, VA 22821 or submitted electronically through our website prior to raceday. Registration prior to the event is required. The entry fee per team is $25. Entry fees can be paid via check and sent with your registration form OR you can pay online at SquareUp. Checks should be written to The Town of Dayton.

This event is held by The Town of Dayton in memory of Gabe Chester, who our community misses dearly. Proceeds benefit Camp Holiday Trails- A Camp for Children with Special Health Needs.

Task: Prior to the event, design & build a cardboard boat able to complete a voyage across the lake carrying two crew members.

Build Rules: Boats must be constructed prior to the event and made entirely of cardboard (any type), duct tape, glue, water-soluble caulk and/or silicone sealant (for fastening purposes only), and decorative paint. Duct tape cannot cover more than 50% of the outside of the boat. No other materials (staples, foam, rubber, plastic, etc.) are allowed and use will lead to disqualification from awards. There are no restrictions placed on decorative materials used as long as they do not reinforce the structure of the boat. The boat sides must be at least 12 inches tall. Boats must be manually propelled using paddles. Paddles can be any material and should be provided by the team.

Race Rules: Boats must carry two crew members at all times. Crew members must be able to swim to participate. Each crew member must wear a personal flotation device. We will have some on site, but crews are encouraged to bring their own.

The 2018 Silver Lake Races Horn Trophy Winner is the team to cross the lake in the least amount of time. Other trophy prizes include The Titanic and Best Theme. Costumes are encouraged as well as sportsmanship.

Boat check-in begins at 12pm and races begin at 1pm.

In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
