Gather Your Mates and Get in the Race!

Sharks, storms and scurvy are real distractions. Designing, building and racing a boat together works wonders for morale and teamwork.

Answer the call of the open sea!! With little or no experience, your crew can build seaworthy crafts, from all kinds of materials… Whatever Floats Your Boat! Boats must be homemade and manpowered by one or two persons! Boat crews will have chances to take home the “GOLD”!

There will be boats, campers, trucks, and more on display. We’ll be grilling up some dogs & burgers for your hungry crew, providing fun games, music and raffle items! It is going to be a BOATLOAD of fun!!

TXT 4 HELP is a nationwide, 24-hour text-for-support service for teens in crisis.

If a young person needs immediate help, they can depend on any location with the Safe Place sign. Arnette House is the local Safe Place agency. Now there is TXT 4 HELP. Youth can text the word SAFE and their location (address/city/state) to 69866 for help.

How it works:
Text the word “safe” and your current location (city/state/zip) to 69866.
Within seconds, you will receive a message with the the closest Safe Place location and contact number for the local youth shelter. You will also have the option to text interactively with a mental health professional for more help. It’s quick, easy, safe and confidential.
