2019 BCMAMS RAFT RACE

In the 70's - 90's a group called the Jaycees started "the Battle Creek Raft Race". 6 years ago we decided to bring it back. The 7th annual BCMAMS Raft Race is a DIY Raft Competition, A summer fun festival on the banks of the river, a rubber duck race, and most importantly a FUNdraiser. The only DIY raft requirements are no motors or environmentally compromising materials. We want to protect our river!
