January will be Ranger Derby month.
Royal Rangers and God’s Girls Club will be making and racing our Derby cars. Kid’s Club Jr. friends can only make a car if their parent comes in to help them make it. We are encouraging the kids to invite friends to come and check out our programs and participate in the Ranger Derby races.
There will also be an open category for teens and adults to race, parents you can get involved too!! We are asking that each racer pay $10. This fee covers one Official Ranger Derby Car kit, a set of car weights and the race entrance fee. If this is prohibitive for your family please talk to any Midweek Ministry leader (Pastor Jake or Allison Leckel, Pastor April, Chris or Kim Post, etc). Kids will not be able to use last year’s car to make it fair for everyone.
To make this a successful event, we need 1-2 band or scroll saws with operators to cut out the kid’s designs on Jan 8 and 15. Talk to Pastor April or Chris Post if you can help.
We also need help the day of the race. Go to goo.gl/dgZ9Xe to sign up.

All the materials needed to build a Derby car will be available on these dates. Cars will also be judged for design.
