Grand Prix 2016 will be the first week in March! It is time for Cubbies, Sparks, and T&Ters to select a pinewood derby car to race! Grand Prix is a fun, family event – so come join the festivities and cheer your clubber on!

Car kits are $7 each and include 1 shaped wooden car, 4 wheels, 4 axles, and 2 sets of stick-on weights. Your CubbieSpark, and T&T child(ren) are to paint and decorate the cars however they want to! Let the creativity flow! 🙂

You pay when you get a car. Please bring cash (exact change is most helpfup) or a check made out to Judson Baptist with Awana and your child(ren)’s name on the “for” line.

We will have a table in the lower level hallway outside the Awana Game Room on Wednesdays at 7:00pm. Please do this BEFORE you pick your children up from Awana.

There are 125 car kits (in a variety of car styles) and they are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. (After the 125 car kits are gone or if you want a solid block that is not shaped, stores like Hobby Lobby usually have them for sale. IF you purchase a car elsewhere, please let us know to add your child’s name to the list so we can include the car in the heats!)

GRAND PRIX for Puggles and Cubbies is on Wednesday, March 2nd:

  • Puggles DO NOT buy a car kit, but bring from home a Matchbox or Hotwheels type car to race in their classroom on a new racetrack. All Puggles receive a MVP ribbon, which, of course, stands for Most Valuable Puggle!
  • Cubbies will have the Grand Prix in the Gathering Room and YOU stay with them during the races. Each Cubbie who participates will receive a ribbon. (Bear Hug verses are NOT said this night.)
  • Cookies will be provided after the races for Cubbies in the Gathering Room and for Puggles in their classroom.

GRAND PRIX for Sparks and T&T is on Friday, March 4th:

  • Sparks and T&Ters cars will compete against other cars in their club for the fastest car AND the best in design. Trophies will be given at the end for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in Speed and Design for both clubs.
  • A complementary pizza dinner will be served at 5:30pm and the races start at 6:00pm.
  • Leaders: please wear your club shirt and bring a dessert to share. 🙂
  • All cars will be weighed at Check In and must be 5 ounces or less to be eligible to compete. Any car that has won a trophy for Speed or Design at the Grand Prix in the past years is ineligible.
