The name of the game is Canoe on Wheels, but your entry can be anything that you like. Follow the instructions provided with the kit. All qualified entries will compete for the speed awards. Awards will also be given for three show categories: Indian Guides/Indian Princesses Theme, Original Design  & Craftsmanship. Judges will be looking for signs of parent and child participation in the design and construction of each entry. 

NOTE: Additional weights, wheel clips, tools and kit supplies will  be provided at the event  on a limited basis( look for the racing pits table ). Bring a small screwdriver, some extra weights, washers and screws & glue to make weight adjustments if needed.  When you  check-in,  your car must be properly weighted to qualify and race, so please weigh your entry prior to the event at the check in/registration table. We will be offering a pre-weigh in, the Friday night before each scheduled race at O'Neil  School.  If you wish to have your car pre-weighed the night before, please bring your car to the school and we'll weigh it on the official scale for you.  You must leave it at the school after you have weighed it. You can also pre-weigh your car at the post office, local hobby shop or a store bought postage meter. Any car weighing over the allowed 8 ozs will not qualify to race. Please follow the directions provided with each kit.
