The Skelton 4-H Educational Center was the host to the first annual (we hope not the only) cardboard boat regatta. After a month of Jack’s sweltering work days in the hangar designing, crafting, cutting, taping, gluing, varnishing, and painting the boat, we added a name (“Miss Hap”), a marketing logo (www.bedfordlandings.com), and a flag (Thank-you Chris Baker at Business Design Solutions).
There were 18 boats built for the regatta and all were on display Friday night. We had to strap the boat to the truck and drive it to the other side of the lake.
Loading the boat to transport (45 minutes away) to the 4-H Center.
Displayed with a picnic basket and wine glasses, we were awarded “Best Presentation!”
Since Bedford Landings submitted the entry, we proudly displayed brochures and business cards along with the boat.Below is a series of photos with captions about the end results.
Taking awards for “Best Presentation” and Third place in class was a great start for the first regatta! Plus it was WAY FUN!
