Cardboard boats go head to head in friendly competition
KINGSTON – The sounds of splashing and laughter mixed with shouting and cheers from the banks of the Kishwaukee River on July 20 as teams from across DeKalb County competed in the ninth annual Kingston Kardboard Boat Regatta.
Six trophies lined a picnic bench as the first of 11 boats embarked on a 100-foot dash to a buoy upstream and back.
Event coordinator Taunya Fischer said in addition to the single-boat event, each team was entered in the “Head-to-Head” competition – a no-holds-barred race between each of the boats. She said each team could do whatever was necessary to keep other teams from winning the race.
