1st Annual Great Zucchini Race
August 2, 2012
Hosted by NCNB North Cascades National Bank of Chelan. (Chelan Evening Farmers Markets largest supporter!!)
Grow your own Zucchini Race car! Race it at the Chelan Evening Farmers Market. Build your racer at the Farmer’s Market and race it with friends, family, and neighbors. Everyone can participate, everyone’s a winner, and it’s completely FREE.
Build your zucchini racer at the Farmer’s Market or bring your racer from home. A limited number of wheels and axles will be provided at the Market. (Zucchini’s too if you didn’t grow your own) Design and Speed winners will be awarded.
Cars will compete on a wooden ramp – three at a time. You’re guaranteed a first, second, or third place. Great for kids of all ages. A booth to help participants build their race cars will begin at 4pm (opening time of the market) and the races will begin at the 5pm and continue until everyone has finished. All participants receive prizes!
The only “official” rules are that they must be made out of vegetables, (preferably a zucchini) and that the wheels must be part of the car. This means you cannot strap a zucchini to a skate board, roller skate or anything like that.
There will be weight classes so that large veggies will race against other large veggies to make it more fair.
Each car will receive a number that will be stuck onto the car and a matching number will be placed on a name tag that the “driver” will wear. This name tag with number will allow you to receive your prizes at the end, so make sure to keep them.
HELPFUL HINT: Althugh its not easy to paint or write with markers on vegetables (I tried). you can stick things to them, wrap them in fabric, paper, foil etc. You can use toothpicks and pipe cleaners to add things to them also.
For those of you looking for help in creating your race car, join us Thursday, July 26th from 5–6pm for our Race Car Clinic. Here you can see examples of cars, pick up wheels and items to decorate your cars (supplies are limited). You can practice at making a race car, but be aware, that you will need to plan on making another one to actually race with as these cars have a limited shelf life!
Our 2012 Business class Best In Show winner was England Chiropractic…Congratulations!
