Rev up your engines for Ancaster Heritage Days’ Soap Box Derby

WhatsOn Apr 10, 2015 Ancaster News

Ancaster Heritage Days is once again calling all drivers interested in competing in the annual Heritage Day Soap Box Derby on Saturday, June 13.

There will be two divisions – youth and adult. The youth division includes kids between the ages of eight and 15 competing for the Rastin’s Pharmacy Cup. This is also the fourth year for the adult division, ages 16 and older. Unlike the youth division, the champion will be determined by a scoring system. Fifty per cent is based on speed and 50 per cent on “artistic impression.” The Ancaster Community Policing Centre has already started to work on this year’s car to defend their trophy.

For those just starting out – and even the most seasoned soap box derby racers – the Ancaster Library hosts a session entitled How to Build a Soapbox on Saturday, April 17 at 3 p.m. Everyone is welcome and admission is free. For more information, contact Melissia McSweeney at mmcsween@hpl.ca.

The race begins after the Heritage Day parade finishes passing by the library on Wilson Street. Applications and rules can be found on the Ancaster Heritage Day’s Website at www.ancasterheritagedays.com, or at Rastin’s Guardian Pharmacy, 323 Wilson St. E., Ancaster. Deadline is May 30.
