Canoe Battleship Tournament

March 4 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Annual fight to the death (of the boat) between ships and their crews. Each team is issued a ship in the form of a canoe, a shield on which to set their team name and logo, weapons of buckets, and paddles to move with. Once the ships are launched in the pool at Taishoff, the battle begins. A ship is dead and out once it’s been sunk. Water from other teams’ buckets and hands, from hose cannons on the sides, from waves in the pool and from accidental splashing all combine until the kayak is so full that it submerges. At the point it sinks, the ship is out. The last ship floating is the victor.

Registration open at $30 per team.
