Plywood Cup 2019

From Regina Centre at Wascana Lake - Regina Saskatchewan on 01/07/2019

Wow what a great July 1st for Regina’s Canada Day Celebrations which includes the top crowd drawing event of the day.    The Canadian Progress Club Plywood Cup.

Building a sea (lake) worthy craft with just a sheet of plywood, nail , hammer, saw and duck tape can be a challenge all to itself,  the building of the boats is a huge draw for the Canada Day celebrations,  but the highlight of the day is the race itself.  Just watching the launching of one of these boats is a  sight to behold.

Some racers are done after just a couple of strokes of the oars,  after a dip in the mighty Wascana Lake, they emerge with the vow do win next year.
