Students during the 9th annual Welcome Week competed in a popular ABAC tradition: the Cardboard Boat Race.Teams of ABAC students must make a boat from only duct tape (brightly colored) and cardboard.
A brave teammate must then race across Lake Baldwin in the team’s cardboard contraption against the other contestants. It is sink or swim. Several students end up swimming.
The event was held on Monday, Aug. 10, at 2 p.m. The supplies for the boats were provided by ABAC and prizes were given to the winners.
