5TH. ANNUAL CONSECON SOAP BOX DERBY

SATURDAY AUGUST 1ST. 2015

CONSECON SOAP BOX DERBY

The Ameliasburgh Ward 4 Recreation Committee working together with (CARA) the Consecon and Area Ratepayers Association Inc are delighted to inform you that we will be holding our Fifth Annual Soap Box Derby.

This, the midday feature event of the “Consecon Community Day” festivities, will happen Saturday August 1st. on the Mill Street hill in Consecon at 1:00 pm. Free registration will take place at the intersection of Consecon Main and County Road 29 beginning at 12 noon.

The Soap Box Derby is open to both girls and boys age 5 years through 12 years, there are no registration fees required to take part. Competitors are grouped into three separate age categories, 5 and 6 year olds, 7 years through 9 years, 10 years through 12 years.

Competitors will have two individual runs down the hill for best times, (not racing against each other head to head). Fastest overall time in each category will determine the age group winner. Helmets are mandatory for all competitors and all Soap Box cars must have a proper braking mechanism installed, otherwise the cars will be considered ineligible to compete in the event.

This annual event has grown significantly since our first derby in 2011 when we entertained some 20 participants, increasing to last year's 45 entrants. We attract kids from all over the County, Trenton, Belleville, Brighton, Kingston, Ottawa, and Toronto, as well as kids from Calgary and Edmonton who summer in the County.

All safety precautions will be in place and St. John Ambulance will be in attendance during the event.

Following the children's event we'll hold a senior's run for anyone 13 years or older who love to have an opportunity to see how they stack up against the kids. The same safety precautions apply. Check website http://www.consecon.ca for details.
