A long-standing Tahoe Donner tradition, head down to the Beach Club Marina for a chance to participate in the annual Cardboard Regatta. Your team will construct a boat out of cardboard and duct tape to race from the boat launch to the buoy and back. An awards ceremony on the beach will follow. Build your boat in advance and bring it down to the beach by 2 p.m. for display; the race starts at 3 p.m. Prizes will be awarded in two age groups.  The rules for this event are; two people must paddle the boat, it must have sides and resemble a boat.  It must be made from cardboard and duct tape only, and above all, you must have fun. For more information on the rules please contact the Beach Club Marina at 530-587-9460.
