Recycled Raft Race ... 10 June 2018

The Chester Land Trust’s Huckleberry Finn Adventures series was underway on June 10th with a Recycled Raft Race. Each raft was uniquely designed and built from recyclable materials that were collected by the Board of Trustees from the Chester Land Trust.
Dads and moms, friends and families, grandparents, dogs and many FINNS created their water-craft and the races began! There were four heats and the winner of each heat qualified for the “Finals”. Each raft was unique in its structure, dimensions, and numerous or limited items used. Amazing to all that every raft floated! The ”Robert’s Rules“ raft incorporated some of the ample knotweed on the Carini Preserve. Below are some photos to share! (All photos by Allyson Preble)

Awards were given to the top three finishers. Prizes were given to all the FINNS with the hope that they return next year. Thanks to each contestant and all who supported and participated in this event.
