Grand Prix 2017 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 (family maximum of $20) and include 1 shaped wooden car, 4 wheels, 4 axles, and a set of stick-on weights. Your CubbieSpark, and T&T child(ren) can 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 helpful) 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 beginning TONIGHT.

There are 125 car kits (in a variety of car styles and a few solid block kits) and they are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. (After the 125 car kits are gone, 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 1st:

  • Puggles DO NOT buy a car kit, but bring from home a Matchbox or Hot Wheels type car to race in their classroom on a 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 medal ribbon. (Bear Hug verses are NOT said this night.)
  • Cookies and juice boxes/waters 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 3rd:

  • 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.
  • 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.
