Ahoy there, mateys! Do you have what it takes to be named the Captain of the Cardboard Catamaran Cup? Put your boat building skills to the test and head to The Lodge of Des Peres outdoor pool. Bring your already-built boat to lazy river. You can use only duct tape and cardboard to make your boat for this single-elimination style race. Boats cannot exceed a width of three feet. Paddles and life jackets will be provided, and proper swim attire is required. Prizes will be given to the top three contenders. One participant per boat.

Cost is $15 for members of The Lodge, $16 for Des Peres residents and $18 for non-residents. Spectators are free. For ages 7 through adult. 

6 to 7:30 p.m. at The Lodge Des Peres. Registration by July 7 is required.
