The Reusable Regatta is a friendly competition that exists in order to help spread awareness about the importance of sustainability and waste reduction on campus. Participants have the opportunity to build and race a raft of their own using recyclable materials. This event, hosted in conjunction with Campus Sustainability Day 2012, is a wonderful chance to learn more about sustainability, make a difference in the NC State community, and have tons of fun!
This year, the event will also include games from various on campus organizations, a self-guided campus sustainability tour, and other activities.
Registration is now open for the third annual Reusable Regatta raft race!
The registration fee is $10 per team and online registration is preferred. However, teams can register and pay the increased registration fee of $20 in cash at the lake the day of the race.
Free pizza and assorted prizes will be awarded to all participants. Each member of the winning team will receive a solar powered backpack from the University Sustainability Office.
You can register your team by filling out this online form.
Rafts may be built in advance or on the day of the race during the build time from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. If you build your raft in advance, you do not have to be on-site until 2:45pm.
