Anything That Floats Boat Competition - Wednesday, April 9

RPI Relief- Mighty Waters is hosting the second bi-annual Anything That Floats Boat Competition on Wednesday, April 9, from 2-5 p.m., at the Robison Pool. This competition is to raise money for SALT (Schoharie Area Long Term) to help with continuing recovery from the impact of Hurricane Irene in the greater capital region.

Teams of students are encouraged to register in advance. The team registration fee is $30, payable prior to competing. In addition to the grand prize and bragging rights for the fastest "boat" to travel the length of the pool and back, there will be other amazing prizes for "reduce, reuse, recyle," "best propulsion," "outside the box design," "driest captain," "creative team theme," and "team spirit."

Everyone - team members, spectators and the entire Rensselaer Community - can enter a raffle to win a pair of tickets for a 2-hour long cruise in New York Harbor on the Schooner America, sponsored by the Scarano Boat Company of Albany! Raffle tickets are $3 each, or 10 tickets for $20, and can be purchased at our table in the VCC North Quad from 12 noon to 3 p.m., poolside from 2 - 4:45 p.m., or from Mighty Waters Team members by calling ext 3098 before April 9. The drawing will be held between 4:45 and 5:00 p.m. on April 9, and you do not need to be present to win.
