Winners Plan Ahead

Next Saturday, July 14, we'll hold our 9th annual Zucchini 500!

 

So why are we telling you this week? Because this week, you can sign up and receive the wheel kits that your kids will need to create the best possible zucchini racers. Wheel kits are $2 each or free with a non-perishable food donation.

 

Yes, you can sign up next week on race day and use our craft table to decorate your racer. But having the wheels in advance allows you to create and test your racer for speed, and to decorate your racer to the limits of your creativity. Most of our past winners have used this week wisely, and wowed us with their technical and design skills.
