Whatever floats your boat!

A rising tide lifts all boats, except when your boat sinks. The hope is all cardboard boats and boaters stay above water in the annual Family and Morale Welfare and Recreation cardboard boat race this Saturday on Fort Leonard Wood. For this race, teams will have constructed a 2-person cardboard boat that is capable of completing the course on the Training Area 250 Lake. There will be two categories of competition: Adults 18 years and up, and Families with at least one child 17 and under.
Awards will be given to the most spirited team, the most creative design, and the first boat to cross the finish line. There is no charge to participate. The race is open to the public. For more information, or to register, call 573-329-8587, go to the Leisure Travel Services office, or go online to leonardwood.armymwr.com.
The cardboard boat race will start at 11 o’clock tomorrow morning. All boat construction must be completed prior to the event.
