Please keep working with your children each day on their verses and sections so they can finish strong! Contact your child’s Directors or the Commanders if you have any questions.
  3. Students Leaders will serve on March 7th instead of February 28th so they can be part of the GROW class that Pastor Jeff Mims is teaching to the youth next week.

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.

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.
