Jump in for a Boat Bash

DO you love boating – but often get seasick?

Do you love competition – but also a bit of fun?

Combine the two and you get the Boat Bash which will be on again at this year’s Seafood Festival.

Zinc (Radio) will be hosting the event, which will see crews from around the region step into bright, fun and colourful costumes while running around on land in homemade bottomless boats.

The event should be a bit chaotic, with competitors having to navigate through obstacles while spectators look on at the madness.

The best thing about the event is it is open to everybody.

All you need to do is grab some co-workers, friends or family and build your water/land craft.

There will be three categories; Juniors (ages 6 to 12), Seniors (ages 13 to 17) and Open division (ages 18+).

Prizes include CD packs, seafood vouchers and festival vouchers; for best water craft, most entertaining and line honours.

Teams are required to sign on by 10.30am Sunday September 12 for a boat parade.

You can pick up a form either at radiozinc.com.au or at the Gladstone Festival and Events office near the Marina.

Nominations need to be returned to carli.hobbs@primeradio.com.au or dropped into the Zinc office by 5pm on Thursday, September 9.
