Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV )
ON YOUR MARK...GET SET...GO!
THIS ISN'T A TYPICAL BOAT RACE.
"Today is the great boat float that Kapstone sponsored; it's a card board boat race. All the boats are made of card board."
23 BOATERS ENTERED THE RACES THIS YEAR IN HOPES OF BEING THE NUMBER ONE BOAT.
THERE WERE 6 TO 7 HEATS WITH 4 CONTESTANTS IN EACH RACE.
THE BOATS CIRCLED A 200 YARD COURSE TO SEE WHO COULD GET THE FASTEST TIME.
"We have heats time's heats so the best time wins they go to a final heat those those are there best times."
THERE ISN'T JUST A FIRST SECOND AND THIRD PLACE PRIZE EITHER.
"There's a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize which is a card board cup and then we have other awards or trophies which we call them the Titanic, best dressed, spirit award, pride of the Regatta those types of things."
THIS YEAR THE RACE HAD A LARGE AND VERY SUPPORTIVE CROWD.
"No, this is a really good crowd, there's more than we expected and were really happy with that. I think everyone's having fun and a good time."
GETTING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER FOR LITTLE COMPETITION.
