CANCELLED – 13th Annual Charity Bathtub Boat Building and Race

March 23 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

CANCELLED!! From Leaah Launey:

Heads up!  We have just canceled the Charity Bathtub Race at Lake Kaweah because too many members of the Teams who had committed to the Race are down with either COVID, the flu, a stomach virus – or have recently been exposed to same. It seems the universe is telling us, not to hold the Race this year! Never fear, however. We are already aiming for the 2025 Bathtub Race! Meanwhile, we wish to thank the USACE at Lake Kaweah for kindly providing a no-fee special permit for this charity event, Tulare County Sheriff for committing to coverage on the Lake, the Sheriff’s Volunteers-in-Patrol or VIPs for committing to coverage at the Lake’s building and racing site, the Welch family and Kaweah Whitewater Adventures for partnering with us to actually run the event, Efrain Ponce of Sequoia Cider Mill Restaurant who carries the heavy cast iron bathtubs back & forth – in addition to storing them in the meantime! We wish to thank all who provided recyclables (Casa Mendoza Restaurant, Sequoia Cider Mill Restaurant, Nadine, and other locals), all who provided the Charity pot of money (Three Rivers Woman’s Club, Todd’s Pizza Factory, Family Healthcare Network, Reimer’s Candies & Gifts), and last but not least we wish to thank our enthusiastic recruiter Betty Belman. We could not run this event, without the wonderful assistance provided by this community, community organizations, and our local businesses!  Finally, we wish a speedy and full recovery to every one of our Bathtub Racing Team members. Leah & Peter

PACK A PICNIC LUNCH and take the family to beautiful Lake Kaweah for the day, where you can enjoy the river and Lake, gaze at green hills, white sand, granite boulders, gorgeous wildflowers, and even snow on distant Alta Peak, as you watch Bathtub teams attempt to turn their cast iron bathtubs into floatable, steerable boats before racing them across a shallow lagoon located in the Kaweah Recreation Area, FOR CHARITY.

The event will take place at the Lake Kaweah Recreation Area.

The event is free, and the day use fee (of $4 per vehicle) will be waived.
