September 10, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - September 12, 2021 @ 10:00 pm


Pequea Creek Races

A weekend of fun culminating in a race down the Pequea.  Teams get a package of materials, each team gets the exact same package, and from this package they build a boat.  Boats are raced culminating with a champion being crowned on Sunday.  Other prizes awarded on Saturday by our panel of qualified judges.

Friday September 10th, 2021. 6pm

Teams meet at Sickmans and get their materials list.  This will be the first time that each team will see what they have to build their boat with.  Every team gets the exact same supplies.

A band playing, time to mull over the project, start the design mind working, lubricate the brain cells with a few beers and let the brilliance start.
