What group do you race with?

Post by millettbbc » Fri Jan 16, 2009 6:35 am

I am curious as to who we all race with.

Which group?
Which pack?
Which church?
What?

I know of BSA, Awana, Kub Kar, Shape and Race... but I Know there are more. What about you?
I would be interested to have a poll to show how many race from each group but don't want to make a poll and miss listing a group that races.

Me... I race with a church that used to have Awana but still has their track so they invite our church and other churches to race with them.

How about you?

My sons and I race with
Our BSA Pack
Our BSA District when they hold one

(Toying with the idea of proxy racing after pack days are over)

Our campground where we have a seasonal in Maine has a Nascar weekend every year they bring in some cars and we also have a PC race. We go by BSA standards.

Usually around 60 kids!

Peninsula Bible Church Palo Alto holds an annual Shape N Race Derby. Originally, it was just for CSB Stockade members (3rd-6th grade boys). Now, it's for CSB Stockade, CSB Treeclimbers (1st-2nd grade boys and their dads), and Pioneer Clubs (girls, and 4-5 year old boys).

Technically, Pioneer Clubs calls their event a Pine Car Derby, but since the CSB leaders are the ones running it and ordering the kits, we call it a Shape N Race Derby for everyone.

We race BSA Pack & BSA District.

Is there a BSA Council race or equivalent? Or higher?

Millettbbc,

I race in our annual Awana race held in Jan. and then our Regional Awana race held in Feb. The regional race is very competitive and includes several churches. I have won the leaders race there the last few years.

Our church along with another local church have a yearly adult Awana Grand prix. We have done this the last two years.

I just thought it would be worth noting that CSB no longer calls its derby a Shape N Race Derby. That trademark apparently belongs to the company that has been making the kits: http://www.shapenrace.net/

CSB now calls its derby a StocKar Derby. I haven't seen the new kits though, since we haven't run a derby since the name change.
