Debris or Vessel at Sea?

Thursday, April 5th, 2012 was the first time the competition for the CAFNR
Cardboard Regatta race set eyes on each other. The teams gathered at The Central Missouri Food Bank at 5:30 PM to “dumpster dive” for the only material they’re allowed to use to build their man made boats-cardboard.

Young and old gathered at The Central Missouri Food Bank on April 5th, 2012 to collect their cardboard for their man made boats.

The race is designed to raise awareness and funds for The Central Missouri Food Bank, but other incentives exist to join the race. “I work in the Department of Natural Resources, and I wanted to compete with my coworkers,” Kim Pope said. Her team, called Limnology Lab, are still in their creative process in the design of their vessel. “We’re planning a boat that doesn’t sink,” Pope said with a smile.

Kim Pope displayed her cardboard that she and her team will put to use in building their boats for the CAFNR Regatta race to be held April 21st, 2012 at A. Perry Philips Park in Columbia, Mo.
