Wanted: Your Best Sled at Indian Springs

Think you have what it takes? Build your best sled for Indian Springs Metropark's first Cardboard Classic.

The following is a press release from Huron-Clinton Metroparks.

What can you create with a few pieces of cardboard, some tape, paint and glue? Make the fastest and most imaginative two-person sled to compete in the Cardboard Classic at on Sunday, Feb. 12.

Children and adults are challenged to create a two-person sled to race down the park’s sledding hill. Fun prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place winners for fastest and most creative sleds.

Registration and creative judging begins at 11 a.m.; races start at 12:15 p.m. An awards ceremony will be held immediately following the final race, where fun prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place winners for the fastest and most creative sleds.

Sleds must seat two individuals and be composed of only the approved materials: cardboard, tape, paint and glue. Any type of tape, such as masking tape or duct tape, is allowed. Racers must also be able to see out of their sleds. Any sled not in compliance with these regulations will be disqualified from competition.

Cool idea. If you want to test out those homemade sleds, you can check out http://tobogganhills.com/ for a map of local hills, and also add hills to the map for others to locate and enjoy. Good luck to everyone participating! :)
