Paddle Battle: Ships and Giggles
The popular event is back for the third time on October 10, now with a new name!Bring your team to Gabel Natatorium at 9:00 pm to jump in the pool and show what your crew is made of! Strength, endurance, and teamwork are all needed to pull the other boat across the line and win points towards the Bronco Spirit Cup!
 
Participants will each get a “Paddle Battle: Ships and Giggles” t shirt for their “ferry” impressive efforts in the water. Get a little sea sick? Not to worry! You can still help your team gain points by volunteering to help set up the event, bringing in items for the week long food drive, or for attending the event and “anchoraging” your friends!
