Plywood Boat Race

2013 Hidden Harbor Marina Rib and Wing Cook-off &

Plywood Boat Race

 It’s almost time again for the 6th Annual Hidden Harbor Marina Rib and Wing Cook-Off – JULY 27th!  TWRA will be joining us again as the judges of our contest.  There is no cost to enter and bragging rights if you win.  There may even be a trophy in it for you.  Cost of the meal is $10 per person with ALL proceeds from the cook-off going to support the Jolly Angels Charity.  Please sign up for the rib/wing cook-off at the marina store.

Over the years the number of people joining the event has grown, which is awesome.  Last year, we fed over 500 people!!!  This year more than ever, we are asking each person or family to prepare their favorite dish to be served.  Don’t have time to cook?  Drop by your favorite store and pick something up.  We just want to make sure everyone has something to eat.  Please bring your items to be served to the store right after the boat race.

Additionally, we had a fantastic auction last year, so if you have something you or your business would like to donate in support of the auction, it would be greatly appreciated.  Please take a moment and think of how you can help.  We would like the items brought to the marina store that morning so it can be on display throughout the day.  The live auction will begin late afternoon. Last year, between the cook-off, the auction, and the boat race, we raised over $24,000!  The money was used to help the children of wounded warriors at Ft. Campbell and for college scholarships for local Middle Tennessee kids needing assistance.   It is good fun for a great cause!

Our 3rd Annual Plywood Boat Race will also take place!   The rules and registration forms ($20 entry fee) are at the marina store.   All boats need to be registered at the store prior to the big event.  Everyone is welcome to enter the contest, so show your ingenuity and join in on the fun!!!  Don’t have time to build a boat?  Boats will be available to rent for $30 with all procedes going to the Jolly Angels.  This service will be on a first come, first serve basis.  Please let us know as soon as possible, so we can reserve one for you.  We will have an adult race (16 and over), a youth race (10 – 15 yrs.), children’s race (under 10 yrs.), and a relay race.

Following the races and auction, will be dinner and the band, Jacob’s Ladder.
