WIL's Duct Tape Derby

When: Sun., Feb. 28, 10 a.m. 2016

Cardboard sledding is not in the Olympics — not yet, anyway. That means the highest level of competition for this sport is still to be found at WIL's Duct Tape Derby. Competitors must use cardboard, duct tape and glue to build their sleds, but the actual design is left up to personal preference. Last year's derby saw a Star Wars landspeeder, a Mario cart and an actual johnny-on-the-spot dubbed "Johnny on the Pot"; who knows what you'll see this year. The competition starts at 10 a.m. today at Hidden Valley Ski Resort (17409 Hidden Valley Drive, Wildwood; 636-938-5373 or www.hiddenvalleyski.com). It's free to participate, and cash prizes are awarded for the two best-designed sleds, as well as for the single fastest run of the day.
