The 2018 Cubbie and Puggle Grand Prix is this Wednesday, February 28th! 🙂

Cubbie Parents, on Wednesday night we need you to take your Cubbie to the Gathering Room, instead of the usual drop-off in the Awana Game Room, and please stay with your Cubbie during the races – unless you serve in another area at church during this time. This is an “all hands on deck” type of night! We will have Oreo cookies, juice boxes, and water for the Cubbies and you in the Gathering Room. (Please bring a special snack with you if your Cubbie has food allergies.)

Puggle Parents, please do not stay in your child’s room for their race. It just works better that way! We will have plenty of Matchbox type cars if you need one for their race. Puggles will have Oreo cookies also in their room. (Please send a labeled special snack if your Puggle has food allergies.)

*Note for Sparks and T&Ters: we have just a few Grand Prix car kits left. If you still need one, please reply back to this blog note. Please remember to let us know if you purchased a car elsewhere so we can add you to the heats. 🙂

Grand Prix 2018 will be here soon: on Wednesday, Feb. 28, for Cubbies and Puggles and on FRIDAY, March 2 for Sparks and T&Ters! Grand Prix is a fun, family event – so come join the festivities and cheer your clubber on!

Now is the time for Cubbies, Sparks, and T&Ters to select a pinewood derby car shape to race. (See the bottom of this post for the car shapes available this year.*) 

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, with or without your help! 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 station to purchase the cars in the lower level hallway outside the Awana Game Room on Wednesdays at 7:00pm beginning this Wednesday, January 24.

There are 120 car kits (in a variety of car styles) and they are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. After the 120 car kits are gone, stores like Hobby Lobby usually have them for sale. IF you purchase a car elsewhere, PLEASE let us know so that we can add your child’s name to the list to include the car in the heats.

GRAND PRIX for Puggles and Cubbies is on Wednesday, February 28th:

  • 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 2nd:

  • 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 of the races for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in both Speed and Design for each club for a total of 12 trophies!
  • 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 the Check In Station 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 past years is ineligible.

Any questions? Please see Commander Julie or Commander Tim. 😊

NEXT Wednesday, November 15th, is Thankfulness Night in Awana Clubs! Please bring boxed or canned food items to show your thankfulness for what is in your pantry and to share with those in need this Thanksgiving. The food collected will be given that night to our Global Focus partner, Front Porch Ministries, who have especially requested mac-n-cheese, canned corn, canned green beans, and/or peanut butter as greatly needed items, but they are thankful for any items!

Puggles and Cubbies: please put your food items in the labeled box at the Preschool desk downstairs where you check in at the computer.

Sparks and T&Ters: show your food items to your Room Secretary to receive the 50 bonus points for participating in the theme night, then bring your food to the Soul Summit Room to put in the labeled box.

STUDENT LEADERS: TONIGHT is your week to serve! Since there is not a youth service because of WIPEOUT last night, invite a Judson youth to come with you to see what we do in Awana for a hands on experience in serving the littlest ones!

(NOTE: Awana Clubs will not meet on November 22nd for Thanksgiving Break.)

3 things to remember for tomorrow’s Award Ceremony and Ice Cream Celebration night:

  1. Take your ice cream (no nuts, please!) to the Gathering Room before 5:45pm.
  2. Sparks, if you are missing any jewels, badges, or pins, see Sparks Director Linda Harlan in the foyer between 5:15-5:45pm.
  3. ALL Clubbers and Leaders, please be in uniform in your designated pew at 5:45pm.

What a fantastic year we have had! See you in the Sanctuary at 5:45pm! 🙂

It’s the crazy night of the year: Double Bubble Bucks Night is here on April 26th! On this last night for sections for Sparks and T&T, all points earned count DOUBLE for the Awana Store NEXT WEEK on May 3rd and EVERYONE  gets Dubble Bubble Gum galore!

Cubbies say Bear Hug 25 and 26 and Puggles have a regular night on Wednesday. We need all the Student Leaders serve this night as scheduled. 🙂

All Leaders: RSVP to your Director by Wednesday for the Leader Luncheon on Sunday, April 30, so we will have enough yummy food for you and your family!

ALL LEADERS: if you would like to “recycle” your leader pin from last year(s), please turn those in on Wednesday. Feel free to keep your cumulative year pins if you want!
