The Recycling Raingutter Challenge: create a boat that would float and race in the rain gutter using only the supplies provided. Girls will be broken into troops or groups and will only have 25 minutes complete a boat to race. Each team will be given a plastic sack of reclaimed trash and simple materials, a glue gun will be on hand for teams to use. Each team will be allotted one trial sail, to make sure the boat would move, hold up in water, and fit inside the gutter.
Rope Runners Derby: are simple wooden figures that balance on a single wheel and race along 1/8 inch nylon ropes. The participants construct their Rope Runners from a kit and then decorate them according to their own design. Rope runners can be as simple as a wooden box with weights, wheel, and axel, or they can be as elaborate as their creators’ dreams. Kits need to be picked up and completed before the race day. On Derby Day, your Rope Runner will race against others for certificates for creative, best look, fastest and more.
