ROANOKE, W.Va. (AP) - Stonewall Resort in Lewis County is holding a cardboard boat race later this month.
The race will be held on Aug. 17 at Stonewall Jackson Lake.
Boats must be built from cardboard, duct tape and environmentally safe paint.
Boats will be launched two at a time. Each boat will be timed on the 100-yard course.
Trophies will be awarded for first, second and third place winners, for best overall design and for the most spectacular "sinking." The entry fee is $10 per boat and all boat crews will receive a T-shirt.
The deadline registration is Aug. 8. Participants under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult in the boat.
