St Augustine, FL, October 19, 2014:
Congratulations to Bartram Trail Design Academy boatmen!
Please congratulate Kai Merten and Patrick Tybor for placing third in the 2nd Annual Quick and Dirty Boat Building Competition, held this weekend at the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine. This was the first year that BTHS participated and they were considered the underdogs. The two of them competed against seasoned boatmen and much larger teams to build a boat out of plywood and race it. Half of the boats did not even finish. A special thank you goes to Kenny Lengacher, from TurnKey Construction & Maintenance, Inc. for sponsoring our team and paying the registration fee and providing the students with a generator and his personal support. Without his support, this opportunity would not be possible for us.
