Event Details, Cardboard Available, Volunteers Needed!

June 19, 2015 ·

Groups of friends, family, and co-workers are encouraged to let their creativity flourish while designing cardboard vessels of all kinds. Four skids of 8ft by 8ft sheets of cardboard were delivered to the maintenance garage at the Crystal Lake Park District’s Main Beach parking lot in anticipation of the 31st Annual America’s Cardboard Cup Regatta. Cardboard sheets can be picked up at the maintenance garage Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There is no charge for the cardboard thanks to a generous in-kind donation by American Eagle Packaging of Elgin, Illinois. Stop by the park district maintenance garage, pick up a few sheets of cardboard, and start building your boat today to participate in this fun and charitable Crystal Lake tradition!
