Cardboard Sled Derby, Ski Roundtop, Lewisberry PA, January 27, 2008

The TLC chose to make their sled represent one of the Star Ship Enterprise shuttle craft. Plans were elaborate to paint it like the original, but had to be simplified due to time constraints.
The European Swallows designed their craft to look like the Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo. They then decided to modify it to look like the Mystery Machine converted into a tank. So it was “Under New Management.”
The Hippies designed Yogi Bears Picnic Basket, complete with a bear claw. The Scouts had only a few hours between two meeting to design, cut, build, and paint their sleds. The boys did all, with little or no adult help.
Sleds had to be transported to the top of the snow tubing chutes by the Scouts. They were usually placed on a snow tube, attached to a tow cable, and the boys walked along to steady the ascent. Three sleds went down at a time, with a push from some adults. The idea at this point was to get the best distance. Finally they came down.Many sleds did not make it to the bottom in one piece, but the Hippies did, and had the 3rd overall best distance.
---------- Here are some of the sleds made by other youth groups and adults. ----------
Homer Simpson
The Smurfs
Marvin the Martian
The Magic School Bus
