Cardboard Boat Races on Noxontown Pond
Liz Torrey

SWAG organized a cardboard boat race on Noxontown Pond for the afternoon of Sunday, September 26. The rules were as follows:

  • Students gathered in teams of four or more.
  • Duct tape, scissors/box cutter and some cardboard were provided. 
  • Students could bring their own found cardboard but were not permitted to buy cardboard.
  • Only one member of each team got in the boat for the race—and was not permitted to use a real paddle. Teams had to build their own paddle or use a pool noodle.
  • Winning team received a Sunday dinner trip—restaurant negotiable!
