Cardboard Boat Race Feb. 24

Engineering students at Hope will be
holding a "cardboard boat race" on Saturday, Feb. 24,
beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Dow Center's Kresge
Natatorium.

The students will be racing craft they designed
and built using only cardboard, duct tape and garbage bags.
The cardboard boats must carry at least one passenger clear
of the water. The race will run for one lap of the pool (25
yards each way).

The event is expected to run until approximately
11 a.m.
