Celebrations start on Friday night with the Old fashioned Concert, on Saturday our friends from MUN’s Ocean Sciences Centre will be on the wharf with a touch tank full of marine creatures for you to see and if you are lucky hold and the Grand Finale on Sunday afternoon, the amazing cardboard boat races.
Here are some photos from last year’s event
Even the weather cooperated (eventually) and Champney’s West days were once again a huge success, thanks to everyone’s hard work
New to this year’s event was the Go Cart racing, only one wipe out, the rest sailed, at various speeds, but all in style over the finish line.
The famous Cardboard Boats races were a huge success again this year. Here is a sample of some of the fantastic boats that took to the water that day. How some stayed afloat , with that many people in I will never know.
Sorry for the delay posting these photos, but I hope you will agree they were worth the wait. Thanks to Michael Fabricant (MP UK) for the camera work
