Cardboard Boat Races

Start saving up all of your extra cardboard boxes – you may need them to build a BOAT! Yes – I said a boat! The Etowah Baptist Mission Center will be hosting the area’s 1st annual *Hope It Floats* CARDBOARD boat race on July 19th. Teams are invited to build their own boats using only cardboard - and a few other acceptable materials - and then race them to see how fast and how far they can go before sinking. The event is a fundraiser for the mission center. Proceeds will be used throughout the center’s variety of missions – including utility assistance and food distribution. The *Hope It Floats* Cardboard Boat Races will be held on Saturday, July 18th at Rainbow Landing. Boats will begin arriving at9am and the races will start at 11. The registration fee is $100 per boat. For all of the details, call 256.546.2980 or visit
