New Race: Bernardston, MA, Soapbox Derby!
From a Montague Soapbox Derby press release:
Saturday, July 14, 2012, 12:00 pm until 03:00 pm -- check-in starts at 9:00.
Registration is closing soon! Go to their website and register before you miss out!
This race it part of the town's 100th anniversary celebration. As such, it may be the ONLY YEAR this race happens. Make sure you're registered! $25 per entry. Based loosely on the Montague, MA, rules.
The track is Hucklehill Road. About a half-mile of down-hill fun... possibly even longer. They haven't set the start and end, but we're told that cars can reach speeds of about 50mph from a dead-stop at the top.
They are still working out the details, and we will send more news as it comes in.
