Saturday, April 9, 2016, the Texas Tech Civil Engineer Concrete Canoe Team, along with university teams from across Texas and New Mexico, will compete at Buffalo Springs Lake.

Yes, you read that right: Boats made out of concrete will be racing to prove that not only can a boat of concrete float, but glide effortlessly across the lake.

The races will be held Saturday, April 9 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m on the no-wake side of the lake near the Boot Hill Pavilion.

Come out early to enjoy a relaxing day at the lake where you can enjoy lots of fun for the whole family, including camping, boating and fishing.
