Oxford Cardboard Boat Race Scheduled for June 25th

The 23rd Annual Oxford Cardboard boat races, benefiting Special Olympics of Maryland will once again take place on the Oxford Strand with races starting at 11a.m. on Saturday, June 25th.

This year’s race will feature: the Battle of the Brave featuring local fire companies, law enforcement, Coast Guard and volunteer organizations, the Corporate Challenge including local merchants and area businesses, the Little Mates Race (ages 5-12) and the Funny Race, featuring those boats with more character than buoyancy.  Added to this year’s event are two new categories: the IronMates which will be a longer race to test one’s strength and endurance and the new Teen Challenge race for ages 13-19.  The YMCA of Talbot County will be taking part in the Teen Challenge race by entering two boats in the race to be built by YMCA teen members this spring.

Join in the fun!  For more information on the event, building and entering your own boat please visit www.cardboardboatrace.org or  www.oxfordpool.org.
